Information

Dandry Gorge doesn't have the hype or the instant wow factor that the nearby Warrumbungles has, nor is the place at the end of a paved road.
In getting to the Gorge, it can be a bit of a journey over gravel and dirt roads that criss cross the NPWS fire breaks. The journey is about 30ks from Baradine and takes about 60minutes, but the journey is very much worth it. There is a moderate easy, well maintained 3km loop walk that will take you firstly on the Gorge Rim, where you can see very some fascinating Sculptures that seem to mould into the surrounding scrub.
Then from the rim of the gorge, your walk down into the Gorge proper and become memorised by the different environment that is uncovered before you. Immediately you notice the drop in temperature and the changes in the vegetation, in the sheer layered rock face, you can see fossils outlines of sea shells and the multitude of small caves.
There are toilet and BBQ's facilities near the carpark, where you can rest and reflect on a very interesting walk to the "Sculptures in the Scrub"
