Walking and driving instructions


Coachwood Falls is roughly a 1hour 15minutes’ drive away from Coffs Harbour, or just 22 minutes’ from Dorrigo town centre. From Dorrigo travel south on the B78 (Waterfall Way) for 2km. Then turn left onto Dome Rd and follow it for the next 1.4km, and then near Dorrigo Rainforest Centre keep to the left (stay on Dome Rd). A car park is at the end of the road (9.3km). The road surface is unsealed for the last 6.6km.

A good size car park at Never Never Picnic Area has all sorts of facilities, including toilets, wooden BBQ, picnic tables and track’s signs. Be aware of snakes.

From the parking follow Rosewood Creek loop track (clockwise) for 30-40 minutes until you reach the Upper Coachwood waterfall. The waterfall is partially seen from the track and it is not signed. The actual Coachwood Falls is found along the same walk, roughly in 5 minutes past the upper Falls. It is got a sign, and there is an unofficial path leading down to the viewing area. Take extreme care! The waterfall’s top is accessible either.

The Falls is located exactly in the middle of the Rosewood Creek Loop, and the track is almost flat and easy.

Total walking time is 1.5-2hrs, 5.5km.

Coachwood Falls is a permanent waterfall flowing well throughout the year.
