A surprisingly beautiful and under-recognised scenic drive, Waterfall Way spans 185km and derives its name from the series of spectacular falls that can be seen along its expanse. Highlighted by the dual-tiered Ebor Falls, there are also numerous optional diversions to hidden scenic spots that can be explored via a number of safe walking tracks, including a range of excellent regional national parks - particularly Dorrigo; an exceptionally beautiful national park, perhaps Dorrigo's most notable features are its waterfalls as well, in addition to the extensive bird life that populate the park. Lyrebirds are a common sight, and the echoes of various treebirds add an additional layer of atmosphere to the already tranquil environment. Many of the other stops along the Waterfall Way scenic drive come well equipped with clean toilets and well-maintained barbecue areas, making for many wonderful opportunities for picnics, scenic outlooks, and even a dedicated bird walk designed to take you through the mid-tier of the treetops and get up close with various colourful avian species. It's a curvy and narrow road that is best done in a series of short bursts and brings with it many visual rewards.
