Access to Dandry Gorge is via a 30klm dirt road which I would not attempt during or after heavy rain. A little rough in patches but passable in dry weather and well worth the effort. Picnic tables and toilets are available adjacent to the car...More

This is a really beautiful place where you can see it would have been a special place for traditional owners to gather and camp. With the addition of an easy walking trail, well positioned seating and appropriate artwork it is really enjoyable to visit. All...More

The Dandry Gorge is a must while in the Pilliga. We went after rain and the roads were great. The sculptures were beautifully done and in the most stunning settings. If we had time we would go back and view them at sunrise. The campgrounds...More

We travelled to this destination via motor home. The dirt road in is a real bone rattler & probably more suited to 4WD though the rangers said we would be fine in our motor home as long as we drive to the conditions. In retrospect...More

Part of the Piliga Forest area, Dandry Gorge is a lovely area to walk or picnic. From the Baradine interpretive centre, it's a 45-60 minute drive, mostly dirt roads. Once there a well marked trail takes you along the top of the gorge past different...More

The gorge is reached by a 30km unsealed road off the Newell Highway. From the parking area a 2.6km return walk takes you past five sets of steel or stone sculptures celebrating the indigenous connection to the area. At the parking area is a toilet...More

Really enjoyed the walk along the top of the gorge and viewing the sculptures. It was lovely the way they were spaced out and you didn't know what to expect. They just popped up out of the scrub. Beautifully landscaped and fitting very well into...More
