Welcome to Bellingen


Bellingen’s lush surrounding valleys make for extremely scenic drives. One such route leads to the hamlet of Gleniffer, 6km to the north and clearly signposted from North Bellingen. There’s a good swimming hole in the Never Never River, behind the small Gleniffer School of Arts Hall at the crossroads. You can also loop around Promised Land Rd, which takes you to the foot of the New England Tableland – a wonderful drive. Bellingen is the beginning of the iconic Waterfall Way, which continues past Dorrigo and then winds west to Armidale.
