Hard track
This challenging one way walk in Dorrigo National Park will take you past Callicoma and Casuarina Falls along Endiandra and Sassafras Creeks. Have a picnic at the end before heading home or perhaps returning the same way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Gumbaynggirr people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
