The Waterfall Way Drive

One of the most beautiful drives in the country. Comes off the A1 at Raleigh. Lots of great stops along the way. Plenty to explore.

Bellingen Island

A little wildlife park right in the middle of town. There is a colony of Flying Foxes here through the summer.

Bellingen Community Markets

Held on the 3rd Saturday of the month in Bellingen Park. Great market with live music, food and plenty of cool stuff to buy

Promised Lands

There is a carpark just after the first bridge on this road. The road is unsealed but OK for most cars. This is a popular swimming spot with clear waters and rope swings. Beautiful blue water.

Crystal Shower Falls

Beautiful waterfall that you can walk behind. Also in this area is another smaller waterfall along the track, as well as a nice BBQ area and a sky walk with great views.

Dangar Falls

A short walk from the carpark. This is a huge waterfall where you can swim right under the falls. Very popular spot. There are BBQs and toilets here. There is a camping ground nearby.

New England Wilderness Trail

Incredible walk that takes around 3 days.

In the Rough Bistro

Great place to eat and have a beer at the golf course. $8 lunches and $10 dinners.

Bellingen YHA

Beautiful, relaxed hostel.

Roses Park Campground

Camping by donation. Nice spot by the river. You can swim here. Keep a lookout for the Bellinger Snapping Turtle.
