Dorrigo Mountain, a mountain on the Great Dividing Range, is located in the Northern Tablelands region of New South Wales, Australia.

With an elevation of 762 metres (2,500 ft) above sea level, Dorrigo Mountain is located about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town of Dorrigo. It is between Dorrigo National Park and Bellinger River National Park.

There is one road that accesses the top of Dorrigo mountain which is the Waterfall Way but the summit is accessible from either direction though the Waterfall Way can close from the east due to flooding and landslides.
