Dorrigo – Danger Falls Lodge and Campground, NSW – $20


Dorrigo – Danger falls


Our GPS took us the wrong way to start with, for some reason it took us up some tiny back streets, up a hill. Thankfully there was a large garbage truck ahead of us, so we new we would fit through, phewwww….
Larry found the way to get there. Eventually, we got there after waiting for enormous trucks to cross tiny bridges, road works and not very good signage leading up to it.
As we drove in and parked on the small hilly verge everyone else was packing up to go. A bus load of teenagers, a couple camping in a tent and a camper van at the end ( something we said? Or is that why the fly’s were on us at the last camp hmmmm …)
We moved to where the campervan was as it was flatter and had the best views.
I checked out the toilets, two of, and same with showers. There was also a bin and a sink for washing up if needed.

Walk to the Falls and Labyrinth 

Cows were in the next field and birds were hopping around. We went for a walk to the opposite field which had a Labyrinth made out of steeping stones. We had to have a go, and I had to finish it.

After that we then headed down to the waterfall only a 10 min stroll (if that) down hill (remember you have to walk back) Its well worth it to see the waterfall. Neither of us took our swimmers but others did. It’s just beautiful. People started to turn up that were on day trips so we headed back up (slowly!)

Nature all around us

Bill, the owner came around to collect the camping fee, Bill seems a lovely guy. He gave us some tips on the roads ahead and chatted about his cows.

I loved the view of the field, cows, trees, greenery (a beautiful thing when you have been living in dry north Queensland)
