Bellingen Shire Taste


Discover the many unique and delightful eats, drinks and treats around the Bellingen Shire.

If good coffee and a snack beside the seaside tickles your tastebuds, sit a while and soak up the friendly, welcoming ambience at one of the many Urunga or Mylestom cafes. Satisfy your soft spot for seafood with a fresh platter on the deck overlooking the river. Or settle in to an honest pub meal, perhaps with some live acoustic music on the side, in an historic heritage hotel setting opposite the beach.

When you visit the small village vibrancy of Bellingen, surrounded by lush green pastures, pockets of rainforest, rivers and mountain ranges, you’ll want to settle yourself in to a comfy chair in one of the cosmopolitan cafés or enjoy some fresh, creatively prepared paddock-to-plate fare in one of the tempting restaurants around town. You’ll be spoilt for choice, so perhaps you’ll need to share the love by taking a stroll to another cafe in town for dessert!

Dorrigo township offers a mix of traditional, authentic rural Australian eating experiences as well as chic cafes and gorgeous fresh local produce – assured to satisfy your cravings and excite your palate. Set on the edge of the Great Dividing Range escarpment, 1000 metres above sea level, the views across the valleys and out to the ocean are a highlight.
