Holiday on the Coffs Coast
Within a half-hour drive of the town you’ll find thundering waterfalls, luxuriant rainforest, mountain lookouts, riverside walks and wide unspoiled beaches.
Head west on the Waterfall Way to the Dorrigo plateau for spectacular mountain views and magnificent waterfalls, stopping along the way at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, gateway to the World Heritage rainforests of Dorrigo National Park.
Enjoy the panoramic views from the famous Skywalk above the forest canopy or wander along the park’s easy walking trails, including the popular Wonga Walk to Crystal Shower Falls and a viewing platform behind the falls.
Only 20 minutes east of Bellingen lie the superb beaches, dramatic headlands and tranquil lagoons of the Coffs Coast. It’s the perfect place for swimming, surfing, casting a line or just lazing in the sun, and exploring pleasant seaside towns such as Sawtell, Urunga and Nambucca Heads.
Or take a short scenic drive to the aptly named Promised Land, where the road winds past pristine swimming holes and idyllic picnic spots on the picturesque Never Never Creek.
