Walking and driving instructions


Newell Falls is roughly a 50 minutes’ drive away from Coffs Harbour, or about 1hour40minutes’ from Armidale town centre. From Coffs Harbour travel south on the A1. Then turn right onto Waterfall Way (B78) and follow it for the next 32km until you reach Newell Falls car park. When you drive towards Armidate, the parking is on your right. The road is a sealed one.

The car park has a few vehicle spots (for 4-6 cars), and a couple of covered picnic tables. It is a nice place to stop to relax for some time.

The waterfall is seen from the car park, but also you can walk for 1 minute along the road to reach a better viewing point.

It is the first waterfall which you’ll see along the Waterfall Way if you start from Coffs Harbour side; otherwise it’s the last waterfall along the way.

Newell Falls is a permanent waterfall which consists of 2 leaps: the upper one is about 20m and the lower one is about 10m.
