Waterfall Way, Armidale

4.7
Waterfall Way, a scenic route that gets its name from the waterfalls encompassed in the Dorrigo National Park, is frequently cited as one of Australia’s most beautiful tourist drives.

Along this route, which is 191 kilometers (119 mi) long, there are plenty of natural attractions for you to enjoy, including lush tropical rain forests, cascading waterfalls, and sprawling plains. Numerous spots along the way offer a range of accommodations, outdoor cafés, open-air markets, and roadside food stalls.
