The Dangar Falls is a cascade waterfall located across the Bielsdown River about 1.2 km (0.7 mi) north of Dorrigo in the New England region of New South Wales, Australia. The falls are small, picturesque, and are a popular photographic subject. For a short time after rain they are quite spectacular. There is an attractive picnic spot which offers excellent views. It is possible to climb down the banks and walk along the river below the water falls.Put Dangar Falls on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Dorrigo trip website.
In the past the waterhole has been the scene of several tragic accidents. Despite warning signs from the local council, the 30-metre high falls remain a popular jumping spot for tourists. In 2012 a 19-year-old German tourist died after jumping from the falls with her friends.

Dangar Falls Reviews
Just a short drive out of town with great parking. A viewing platform just near the car park. But best is to take the walk down to see the bottom of the falls and the pool and river. more »
It’s a waterfall but really nothing that special A 2K detour that was ok but 1 photo and it was done Bonus was a toilet to use more »
This was my favorite place during my east-coast trip. Definitely worth the detour. Big bonus you can swim in the natural pool and you can even swim behind the waterfall - just awesome.
Beautiful big waterfall that can be viewed from the platform near the parking spot. Parking is RV friendly. There is a large playground and a nice picnic spot with free bbq near the parking also. Its a short walk to the bottom of the falls where you can swim. Walking track is mainly a sturdy wooden platform but little kids will need a little assistance at the bottom of the walking track towards the end of the platform as there is a steep rocky bit to get to the bottom. There are lots of slippery stones in the water so its not so suitable for swimming for little kids but not too bad for adults.
