New South Wales - Yuraygir to Dorrigo Walking Holiday

This journey of coastal and inland Northern New South Wales includes eight national parks and reserves with a diverse mix of landscapes, geology, wildlife and walks. Take the time to unwind on spectacular coastal walks, stroll through World Heritage listed rainforest to creeks and waterfalls, admire granite tors and enjoy the ambience of country towns. We begin near the Clarence River enjoying day walks from Yamba on sections of the Yuraygir Coastal Walk, including the renowned Angourie walk. Headland walks at this time of year give the opportunity to spot migrating whales on their journey north. Turning inland, we explore World Heritage listed rainforest in Washpool National Park. Birdlife is abundant in this park with over 220 species recorded and it’s a haven for koalas, quolls, wallabies and Long-nosed potoroos. East of Armidale, Wollomombi Falls is accessible via short walks in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. Nearby Cathedral Rock National Park offers contrasting views of granite tors & boulders while New England National Park protects rainforest streams, eucalypt forests and Antarctic beech trees. For a refreshing change, walk the Crystal Shower Falls walk or to Casuarina Falls in Dorrigo National Park. As we return north, we make a final stop for coastal views on the Cape Byron walking track. This walking holiday spends eight nights in comfortable accommodation at Yamba, Grafton, Armidale and Bellingen.
