DORRIGO FOLK & BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL IS ON 24th TO 26th October
Directly connected to Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, Skywalk lookout offers a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding landscape. Perched right on the edge of the escarpment, the views take in Bellinger Valley to the coast with deep valleys and gorges, blanketed in a rich rainforest.
Skywalk lookout is a 70 metre boardwalk that soars over the edge of the escarpment some 21 metres above the rainforest. Easily accessible, anyone can enjoy the panoramic views of the Rosewood rainforest basin.
The view is dominated by the double peak of McGraths Hump, also known as Old Man Dreaming. In Aboriginal Gumbaynggirr legend, it shows the profile of a warrior’s face, Ngali. It was Ngali’s job to protect women who came to give birth in Bellinger Valley. But Ngali fell asleep, and for his punishment he was turned to stone for all eternity.
For the active visitor making Dorrigo their destination there is much to choose from, including trout fishing, heart-pumping whitewater rafting, canoeing, pack horse riding, camping, canyoning/abseiling, four wheel driving, bush walking, and self-drive scenic tours. Quality facilities are also available for golf, tennis, squash and bowling activities.
