Dangars Gorge campground is a fabulous bush base for experiencing the rugged beauty of this World Heritage-listed falls country. You’ll be camping beside one of the most impressive waterfalls in NSW, on the edge of the Great Escarpment on the western edge of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park.
Once you’ve set up camp, check out the scenic waterfall lookout, spectacular sight after heavy rain as water cascades over a 120m drop shrouding everything in mist and creating beautiful rainbows. There’s a range of walks like the McDirtys walking track, so after a picnic lunch, pull on your walking boots and get ready to explore.
When the sun starts to go down, its time to barbecue up a feast before settling in round the campfire with a glass of your favourite drop and a night of stargazing.
