National Park - Dorrigo National Park


Dome Rd, Dorrigo NSW, Australia

Dorrigo National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area offers stunning scenery that has been millions of years in the making. The park contains a range of forest types that protect an enormous variety of animals and birds, like red-necked pademelons, the vibrantly coloured wompoo fruit-dove and the spectacular regent bowerbird.

A great daytrip from Coffs Harbour, you can go birdwatching, relax at scenic picnic and barbecue spots, explore secret waterfalls and rainforest walks and be amazed by the views from the elevated walk which looks all the way from the forest to the sea. Be sure to stop in at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre and Canopy Cafe.

Safety Considerations :

Staying safe in national parks

It’s great to head out, explore, and experience NSW’s national parks – naturally, we encourage you to see and do as much as possible. There’s such variety, so much to amaze and inspire you.

We also want you and your companions to stay safe as you enjoy your national park visit. In an emergency, dial 000. Fire Rescue NSW has released Emergency +, an app for both iPhone and Android that will help emergency call staff locate you by using your smartphone's GPS functionality.

It’s important to remember that our parks are natural environments and can be unpredictable. You’ll always be welcome to contact individual park offices for information on park safety and weather conditions – but, generally, a bit of planning and foresight makes all the difference. The Bureau of Meteorology website provides up-to-date information on current weather conditions.

A few general pointers

During your visit, please always follow directions from park rangers. If a park or section is closed, it will be for reasons such as the risk of fire or flood, or unstable tracks.
To ensure your park experience is a happy and safe one, keep to marked tracks and designated visitor areas, be aware of your own limitations and supervise children.
Always remember that wildlife is just that – wild. If an animal feels cornered or trapped, it will use its own defence to save itself, and you might not want to be its target. We ask you not to feed wildlife as we don’t want their behaviour towards humans to alter, and possibly lead to aggression. If you are threatened by a dingo, stay calm, keep eye contact, back away, do not run.
In a natural environment there is sometimes no escape from mosquitoes and other bitey insects. Be sure to take an insect repellent, particularly if camping – and be sure to close that tent flap at night.
Stay sun safe. If you’re outdoors, you need a wide brimmed hat and sunscreen. Be sure to take care of the young ones as well.
If you’re heading off for a walk, ensure you and all members of your group are comfortable with the activity, and that you’re prepared for all possible weather conditions.
Always be aware of current fire restrictions and remember that during a total fire ban no fires may be lit at all.
