The river passes through Dorrigo and often catches paddlers attention with slalom gates that are usually hanging over the river right beside the road. Paddling can begin at the Dorrigo Golf course but the section of the river from here to the township is of poor quality unless you like bashing through thick masses of privet trees that clog the river. Rapids are of a grade 1 to 2 standard, taking 1-2 hours.
Putting In: Dorrigo Golf Course.
Taking Out: Dorrigo
Map: Dorrigo 1:25000
Camping: There is excellent camping at Platypus Flat.
Entry Date: 2nd July 2001
