The riverside town of Bellingen is nestled in the heart of the Bellinger Valley between the coast and the Dorrigo Plateau on the scenic Waterfall Way. Home to a large number of people who moved here to enjoy a laid-back and creative, artistic or alternative lifestyle, Bellingen is buzzing with markets, cafes, galleries, festivals and events.

It is the wonderful combination of Bellingen’s turn-of-the-century ‘main street’ village atmosphere, rich architectural heritage, rural charm, bohemian atmosphere and thriving cosmopolitan culture that capture people’s hearts.
