Bellingen Hinterland Hideaways

From rainforest retreats to bohemian bungalows, vintage-chic farm stays to luxury little lodges; Bellingen on the Coffs Coast on the North Coast of New South Wales has a plethora of new and up cycled hinterland hideaways just waiting to be discovered.

“Whether you want to wake up to a chorus of birds; collect eggs or milk a goat for a breakfast omelette; soak in a sunken outdoor bath tub or stay in a converted barn, there is one thing that each property has in common – they offer a stunning setting and some unique and boutique, one-of-a-kind experiences that visitors will simply fall in love with,” shares Glenn Caldwell, Tourism Manager of Coffs Coast Marketing.

Bellingen, just 30 minutes from the regional hub of Coffs Harbour is a riverside village nestled in the heart of the lush Bellinger Valley between the coast and Dorrigo Plateau. “The eclectic village vibe melds together an artistic and alternative scene, plus a buzzing festival, cafĂ© and gallery culture, alongside lavish living,” continues Mr Caldwell. The town’s turn-of-the-century atmosphere, rich architectural heritage, rural charm, colourful characters and cosmopolitan culture capture the heart. To enjoy this luxury, pick from a gallery of high end guesthouses, old chic cottages and retro retreats.
