Be captivated by this eclectic village and the natural beauty

Bellingen is nestled in the Bellinger valley on the banks of the river, with green rolling pastures and pockets of rainforest framed by the tree-clad Dorrigo escarpment.



On the edge of the Great Dividing Range

1000m above sea level, Dorrigo lays claim to the World Heritage listed Gondwana rainforests of Dorrigo National Park with stunning lookouts, scenic walking trails, waterfalls, birds and wildlife.



Urunga – where the rivers meet the sea.

A peaceful town on a picturesque coastal strip, Urunga is popular with boaters, picnickers, swimmers and anglers.  The village has a relaxed sea-side atmosphere.
