I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Visit the lands of the Gumbaynggirr and get into Gondwana
The park is for day use only so there are no camping sites but has excellent visitor facilities. The wheelchair-accessible Skywalk Lookout provides easy access to views of the World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest canopy. The entrance to the park is via sealed roads that are suitable for 2WD cars and there is plenty of free parking. There is wireless internet available at the information centre and the cafe, toilet amenities can be found in various points through the park as are barbecues, picnic areas and drinking water.
The facilities include The Canopy Cafe which is located at The Dorrigo Rainforest Centre. The Rainforest Centre is the hub for tourist information as well as an exhibition space displaying art and exhibits about wildlife and the natural environment. Books, clothing, gifts, postcards and souvenirs can be purchased here.

Walking in the rainforest gives you the opportunity to get close to nature, in summer the air is cooler ha the surroundings and the sky is shaded. In spring, take advantage of the accessible Walk With The Birds Boardwalk to spot or at least hear some of the 150 species of birds that live here.
