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 maintained facilities including a good quality pathway down to the waterfall pool. The final 200m is underdeveloped, uneven and slippery, buy still very adequate. The standout feature is the inclusion of a beautiful Labyrinth.
