Dorrigo lies on the edge of the Great Dividing Range escarpment, 1000 meters above sea level. Dorrigo lays claim to the ‘World Heritage listed’ Gondwana rainforests of Dorrigo National Park, with stunning lookouts, scenic walking trails, waterfalls, birds and wildlife. The Dorrigo township offers a mix of traditional rural Australian stores with chic cafes, boutiques, galleries and gorgeous organic produce.
Dorrigo offers the adventurous-at -heart extraordinary bushwalking, 4 wheel driving, mountain bike riding, canoeing, horseriding, bird watching and trout fishing. The Dorrigo Gazette local newspaper, printed weekly, is the only known newspaper in Australia that is still produced on a hot metal type-setting, printed on a Heidelberg Zylinder Automat press.
