Excursion to Dorrigo National Park: Saturday, 14 July 2018; Sign up at UNE International

Published On July 9, 2018 | By Luke | News

Newly-arrived UNE students are invited to come, with members of the Armidale International Association, to Dorrigo National Park. The primary destination will be Dorrigo National Park, a remnant of the famed Big Scrub rainforest.

Dorrigo itself is a small rural town some 125 km east from Armidale. Reputably named in memory of General Don Dorrigo who fought in the Spanish Royalist Wars of the early 1800s, it now attracts mainly tourists to its beautiful surroundings.

The coach will leave Armidale, heading east, stopping first at the spectacular Ebor Falls for morning tea. Continuing on we shall arrive at the national park for lunch. Somewhat later – enjoy a bushwalk through the forest, passing another two waterfalls before arriving at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre. The Centre contains an informative display area, a shop, a cafeteria and boasts the famous Skywalk. This latter enables visitors to view the forest from above the tree tops – literally a bird’s-eye view! On the way back, we will visit Wollomombi Falls.
