Waterfall Way! Wonderfully wild wilderness walking with a wealth of waterfalls, watercourses that wend through woodlands
and world heritage wonders to whet your wanderlust. Wow, what a winner! Now that we have your attention, let us explain that
this may be the last trip in this brochure but that’s only because it starts with W! Expect wild escarpment country, huge rivers that
pour into the sea plus an incredible variety of terrain and vegetation types. As a bonus, several of the national parks you’ll walk
in are declared World Heritage Areas. At Dorrigo, venture onto Skywalk for a birds eye view of the rainforest forest canopy. You
can see over the remote Bellinger Valley and all the way to the ocean. The hiking here takes you through rainforest with massive
buttressed trees, strangler figs, hanging vines and huge red cedar trees that reach for the sky. Waterfalls on the Guy Fawkes River
plunge over steep basalt ledges into a vast secluded wilderness area. Marvel at Wollomombi Falls, the highest waterfall in NSW
and the second highest in all of Australia. At Cathedral Rock you’ll find snowgums and huge granite boulders that agile walkers
can climb to the top of. The highest point in the New England National Park is 1564 metres above sea level and there’s nothing to
interrupt the view. At Point Lookout you’ll walk through scenery that could be right out of the Lord of the Rings, with ancient
antarctic beech trees draped in mosses and lichen. Challenge yourself on a long gorge hike at Dangars Falls. Lookouts along the
route offer stunning views over exciting wild gorge country. There is just so much variety on offer in this new trip.
