Dorrigo

Dorrigo town and national park have surprisingly become one of the highlights of our expedition.

Mestecko Dorrigo a prilehly narodni park se celkem prekvapive staly tim NEJ co sme na nasi expedici zazili.



Let’s start with the lookout – few kms from Dorrigo, not exactly popular among other tourists but definitely worth visit. It’s better for sunrise and if you wait there a bit you might run into some local cattle friends who usually come up the hill to warm up in the sun.

That lookout spot was just too good for a simple photo so we had a little fun. Just recently we started trying acro yoga which could also be described as couples yoga. You can check out our first successful pose in the gallery – here is warm up picture 🙂

Dorrigo National Park
This is the reason why we came here, relatively small park with couple of interesting walks and few waterfalls. It may not seem as good as other parks, especially when we had to choose 2 out of 6 parks because of time and other reasons. But proper research has paid off. Dorrigo is a great mix of dense jungle with some unusual waterfalls and epic trails.

Jungle or the proper term “tropical rainforest” may sound poetic on a paper but in reality it is a tough experience. You should be properly prepared in order to go for a medium walk – you should for example carry a small pouch with a little bit of salt. Why? Leeches… Whenever they attach on you, just sprinkle little bit of salt and take them off. And make sure you examine yourself often or you will end up just like me. The wounds still have not healed up in 4 weeks.

All the annoying insects and rough walks have their rewards. You will see some of the most beautiful waterfalls. And the best part is that some of them will be just for you for at least few hours.

We started with sunrise so it’s kinda right to finish with sunset, hm?

Some parks don’t offer much and they even require entry fee and there are other parks that offer so much for nothing. Dorrigo is one of them and you should not miss it if you are travelling through northern NSW. And make sure you go for all the walks because they are so worth it!

Zacneme hezky z vrchu a s vychodem slunce, co vy na to ? Nadmorska vyska zhruba 700 metru coz je zhruba dost na to aby bylo minimum komaru a prijemne se dychalo 🙂 Tato vyhlidka nas proste dostala, protoze na ni bylo minimum lidi, nadychana trava na sezeni a rano po vychodu slunce se tam shlukovaly mistni kravicky aby se nahrivaly. Asi nema cenu zminovat ty paradni vychody slunce! Museli sme na tom miste I spat, protoze australske dny jsou znacne delsi nez soucasne ceske zimni. Slunce vychazi nekdy pred 6 a zapada kolem 8 a den je teda dlouhy a parny kdyz chytnete tu pravou letni teplotu.

Ta krasna nacancana trava nas tolik lakala, ze jsme se dali do experimentovani s jogou pro pary. Jmenuje se to presne acrojoga a je to celkem zabiracka. Joga pro pany je vetsinou nezazivna a to je prave tady odstraneno a nahrazeno velmi zabavnou slozkou, ze mate svoji partnerku ve svych rukach a nohach 🙂 Dole v galerii uvidite nasi prvni uspesnou pozu a tady mate nasi stylovou rozcvicku 🙂

Dorrigo National Park
Museli jsme si vybrat 2 ze 6ti narodnich parku v dane oblasti abychom vse stihli tak akorat a volba padla prave na Dorrigo. Vstup zdarma, docela dost moznosti vychazek a zajimave vodopady. Dorrigo navic nabizi pravy husty destny prales ocemz jsme se tedy presvedcili na vlastni kuzi. Nektere pasaze byly opravdu jako z filmu a museli jsme se prodirat lijanama, preskakovat kmeny, bloudit, preskakovat potoky a proste vsechno co si predstavite kdyz se rekne “prochazka destnym pralesem”.

Jenze ono vse neni tak poeticke jak se zda. Prales je hutna zalezitost, kde hodne zivocichu a rostlin bojuje o preziti a rivalita je ukrutna. Jednou z neprijemnosti jsou pijavice. Malinkati previti, kteri jsou evolucne neskutecne vybaveni aby vas vycitili na velkou vzdalenost a pripravili se na vas prichod. Stacila mala dirka v bote a behem hodiny se mi na chodidlo pricucly 3 mrchy, ktere me vysavaly vic nez bezny ucet v Ceske Sporitelne. Ranka se stale po 4 tydnech jeste nezacelila…

01

I kdyby tech pijavic bylo desetkrat vic tak ty odmeny jsou natolik uzasne, ze to za to stoji. Toto jsou Red Cedar Falls a jsou to jedny z NEJ vodopadu co jsme kdy zazili. Nejsou nejvetsi nebo tak, nemaji zadny turisticky atraktivni titul, ale jsou krasne vybalancovane a v harmonii. Temer nikdo k nim nechodi, da se jit az pod samotny vodopad a klidne smocit. Vetsinu vodopadu totiz v Australii muzete sledovat maximalne z povzdali a to proste neni ono. Tady jsme byli sami a nalezite si to uzili.

Zacali jsme vychodem slunce a je spravne to zakoncit nejakym romantickym zapadem, co?
Dorrigo nebylo nejak extra dechberouci a ani nenabidlo nejakou super duper atrakci, ale vsechny ty drobne detaily a vzpominky se spolecne spojily do naproste spokojenosti pri odjezdu. Nekdy clovek najde raj na zemi kdyz ho ani nehleda. Dorrigo bylo a je pro nas jednim z opravdovych skrytych raju v Australii.
