The Wonga walk delivers all the delights of the subtropical rainforest and is one of the most popular walks not only in Dorrigo National Park, but also in Australia.

Tall, lush World Heritage listed rainforest provides a cool and shaded walking track. The cascading Crystal Shower Falls, 600-year-old trees, colourful fungi and interesting bird calls are just some of the sights and sounds waiting for you on this walk.

There are some steeper sections along the walk, a few steps and some boulder crossings, but you can break the walk up into shorter sections.

The walk starts from  Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, you'll need to take Lyrebird link track for 400m before joining the Wonga walk. Look at the Dorrigo National Park map to see all the options.
