  • Dorrigo National Park is not at the top of the priority list for many visitors to Australia, quite wrongly. The park is located a little off the land, between Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie in New South Wales. For only 2 AUD you will be offered a lot here. In the visitor centre you will learn a lot about the predominant subtropical rainforest and its inhabitants. Outside, the Skywalk, a 100-metre-long catwalk, leads to a viewing platform from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over the rainforest-covered mountains of the surrounding area and over the sea in the distance. To see the rainforest up close, the nearly 6 km long Wunga Walk is a good place to see. According to the information board, it takes about 2.5 hours for the tour, but we ran it at an average pace and without big breaks in a little less than 2 hours. On the way you pass three beautiful waterfalls, at two you cross a suspension bridge. Unfortunately we did not see particularly interesting animals, but the way was worthwhile due to nature. Conclusion: The national park is definitely worth it for a day or even half a day. With only 2 AUD entry highly recommended.
