Bellingen Shire is located on the Mid North Coast of NSW, halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, and just south of Coffs Harbour.  The shire consists of three broad topographical areas incorporating the seaboard around Mylestom, Repton and Urunga, the valleys of the Bellinger and Kalang rivers, and the Dorrigo plateau landscapes.   The region is renowned for its ecological diversity with State Forests and National Parks covering more than half of the local government area (LGA).

The Shire is a lifestyle region with an emphasis on cultural vibrancy, livability, and social cohesion.  The events sector is part of the “creative” economy with the renowned annual Camp Creative, Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival, Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival adding to the Shire’s already buzzing cultural life. The vibrant monthly Bellingen Markets also provides an opportunity to showcase our people and culture.

Tourism is strengthened by the fantastic climate, a stunning landscape, boutique shopping, cafés, restaurants, and markets, with access to a wide range of tourism and recreational opportunities.  Lifestyle choices are available and easily accessible to the township including the Dorrigo plateau, rural areas, town convenience or beachside living.
