A perfect bush setting on the Northern Tablelands, the Dangars Falls picnic area has dramatic views over the deep ravines and gorges of the northern edge of the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park.
In spring, the cliff top heathlands come alive with wildflowers, and the scent will hit you as you tumble out from the car. After a downpour the mighty falls are spectacular as crystal clear mountain water plunges over the 120m ravine, filling it with mist and rainbows.
After a lazy picnic lunch or barbecue, spend a relaxing afternoon by the river where the kids can dip their toes and watch the fish. Or if you’re feeling like stretching your legs, try the Salisbury Waters walking track.
