Doon Doon: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Clarrie Hall Dam


Heading west of Murwillumbah, through Uki, and turning south on the Doon Doon Road, takes you to the Clarrie Hall Dam. Built on Doon Doon Creek, a tributary of the Tweed River, Clarrie Hall Dam has a storage capacity of 16,000 mega-litres of water and the primary function of the dam is to provide storage for Tweed Shire's water supply.

Activities permitted on Clarrie Hall Dam include canoeing, boating (electric motor, sail or paddle power only) and fishing. The dam is stocked with Australian Bass and an annual fishing competition is organised and run by the Australian Bass Association.

Clarrie Hall Dam also supports several significant bird species, including the vulnerable comb-crested jacana (Irediparra gallinacea) and the endangered black-necked stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus). The recreation area is perfect for photography, bird watching, nature observation, environmental studies, picnicking and bush walking.

Wollumbin-Mount Warning National Park


This park protects the mountain summit of Wollumbin-Mount Warning, an iconic landmark of the Northern Rivers region. The mountain is the remnant central vent of an ancient volcano, and has a dual name. Captain Cook named it Mount Warning, but to the Aboriginal community it is known as Wollumbin. Wollumbin National Park includes the former Mount Warning National Park (both parks were combined in August 2009).

Wollumbin is a sacred place of great significance to the people of the Bundjalung Nation. It is the first place on Australia mainland to be touched by the morning sun. A climb to the summit to watch the dawn of a new day is a must for the adventurous.

Under Bundjalung law, only certain people can climb Wollumbin, so consider choosing to respect their heritage. The track is a steep nine kilometre return trip, with a challenging rock scramble at the end.

Doon Doon: Events

Uki Buttery Bazaar


Uki Buttery Bazaar runs every third Sunday of the month. Come along and enjoy the wonderful village atmosphere that is Uki. Just a country drive away - 40 minutes from the Gold Coast, less than an hour from Byron Bay. Half the fun is getting there - leave the populace behind, breathe fresh air, and take in the spectacular mountain scenery.

The village Bazaar keeps buzzing all morning. Stay for a scrumptious lunch from one of the 'foodies' or just mellow out under the shade trees, river side with a quality beverage from 'coffee oasis'.

If you're lucky, you can listen to the hillbilly sounds of the local but famous 'Perch Creek Jug Band'. Cruise the trash and treasure bargains, take home a plant or two, and meet the friendly locals. It's a great morning out, but better still, come for the weekend and enjoy Ukitopia - a weekend experience!
