  The beautiful Bellinger
by iandsmith

It's not that far off the Pacific Highway. My advice is, if you're heading north to Coffs Harbour, do take the side trip in and allow half a day to see Bellingen and the Promised Land. Frankly, I'd rather spend half a day there than at Coffs Harbour. Sitting having an al fresco cup of tea watching the ferals wander past is just so relaxing. It sits astride the picturesque Bellinger River and there are many places along the route where you can get scenes reminiscent of my photo - take my tip and make the time.
