Dangar Falls, Dorrigo

4.7
The Dangar Falls is a cascade waterfall located across the Bielsdown River about 1.2km north of in the New England region of New South Wales, Australia. The falls are small, picturesque, and are a popular photographic subject. For a short time after rain they are quite spectacular. There is an attractive picnic spot which offers excellent views. It is possible to climb down the banks and walk along the river below the water falls.In the past the waterhole has been the scene of several tragic accidents. Despite warning signs from the local council, the 30-metre high falls remain a popular jumping spot for tourists. In 2012 a 19-year-old German tourist died after jumping from the falls with her friends.

  • Well worth the 2km drive from Doritos. The falls are beautiful with a great lookout platform for viewing if you are not feeling like the 20 minute walk to the pool below the falls.  more »

  • Fabulous way to cool off on a 35 degree day. An easy walk down. Sensitive feet could benefit from water shoes but otherwise accessible for most. You can swim to the falls and sit behind the falling water. Such a beautiful place and a must for the bucket list.
  • Great place. Need to stop being a nanny state and let people have some fun out there. Cliff jumping etc etc.
  • If you are passing you should take the time to go and see these falls. In the area one of the easiest to get to as the parking is close and its not too far to walk to get to the swimming area. On a hot day it was amazingly refreshing.
  • Wonderful spot! Lookout is right at the carpark along with a children's play area picnic tables, toilets and drink taps. Walk down to the river to swim is about 15 mins. You can take dogs but the current is very strong. Be aware of long grass and snakes, there was a red belly black while we were there! Nit much space to lay a towel as it is very rocky but otherwise beautiful picture perfect location!
  • One of my favourites waterfalls in NSW. Absolutely pretty and amazing. The top platform is only few steps away from the car park and has some stunning views over the falls. There is also another platform at the bottom but it required some 30mins one way walking to get there. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time or the energy to do it but I wish I could. A must visit waterfall in the scenic waterfall way.
