About Bellingen Shire

Home / About Us / About Bellingen Shire

Bellingen Shire encompasses plateau landscapes, river valley and coastal landscapes.

Dorrigo on the plateau is only 50 minutes away from Urunga on the coast, with Bellingen on the Bellinger River in between.

You will find pastural land, verdant rainforest, and some of the most beautiful beaches in New South Wales in this region. Bellingen Shire is also home to the Promised Land, where you will find lush river valleys set against a mountainous backdrop.

Bellingen Shire is not a sleepy rural area! With major festivals and events happening throughout the year and with its burgeoning creative industries, Bellingen Shire is continuing to develop its reputation as a cosmopolitan rural area…
