Walking Track Description
Dangar Falls, about 30 minutes drive south of Armidale in the northern New South Wales tablelands, are nothing less that awe inspiring. One of two centrepieces of the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park (the second being Wollomombi Falls), Dangar Falls and the gorges that wind below it are remarkably deep, and even the bravest walkers are sure to experience a dizzying thrill at Rock Wallaby lookout, which “floats” over a u-turn in the gorge.
Aside from the stunning gorges, take time to enjoy`crossing the Oxley River near the start of the walk, just metres before the river tumbles to the gorge floor below. Above the falls, the river is broad and rocky, and full of birds, frogs, fish and other creepy-crawlies, making it irresistible to kids.
The walk is hilly, and is mainly comprised of loose gravel track. At times the path can be quite steep and uneven so good walking shoes are important.
