Dorrigo National Park, NSW, Australia
Aboriginal name: "dondorrigo" [gumbayngirr] = stringy bark
Here a few photos taken at Dorrigo NP. This NP, which is located in northern NSW, about 100 km south of the border to QLD, is a small oasis of moderate rainforest on an about 1000-m high plateau on the eastern slope of the Great Dividing Range. This area generally receives very high amounts of rainfall (in fact, the Dorrigo plateau is the wettest place in NSW), leading to lush vegetation and diverse animal life within the rainforest. On the drier slopes on the leeside enormous eucalypt gumtrees grow, which are amongst the tallest, most massive and oldest trees on the continent. The park is part of a World Heritage-listed area including also the New England NP. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.

Crystal Shower Falls
Eastern Whipbird, a bird species one cannot miss to hear when entering the park; the sound volume produced by these relatively small birds is astonishing
Also found regularly at Dorrigo NP during the breeding season are Rufous Fantails
