About Bellingen

Situated along the beautiful Waterfall Way driving route, Bellingen is a picturesque town with guesthouses lining the banks of the tranquil Bellinger River. Dairy and other farms thrive in the rich soil surrounding the town, with the Bellingen Growers Market selling some of the bounty on Saturdays twice a month.

Halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, and 30 minutes' drive from Coffs Harbour, Bellingen is perfect for a relaxing getaway and an excellent base for exploring natural attractions, such as the river and the nearby World Heritage-listed Dorrigo National Park.

Belingen Shire provides a wealth of cyling experiences from arduous road ride through scenic backroads, gravel gringing along country roads, some of Australias most iconomic mountain biking and sightseeing rides for the family. Bellingen Shire provides riding experiences in three of its major locations:
