It is the wonderful combination of Bellingen’s turn-of-the-century ‘main street’ village atmosphere, rich architectural heritage, rural charm, bohemian atmosphere and thriving cosmopolitan culture that capture people’s hearts.
Every café and pub you walk into seems to showcase art, music, film nights or other community events with a bustling atmosphere. Other creative hubs can be found 7 days a week around the Old Butter Factory with its galleries and arty shops or every third Saturday at the Bellingen markets.
Bellingen could probably claim to be the festival and events town of the Creative Coast, home to the Bellingen Jazz Festival, Bellingen Writers Festival, Camp Creative, Bellingen Fine Music Festival and numerous concerts and shows at the Bellingen Memorial Hall. The art deco hall is used for everything from weekly classes to plays, gigs, movies and a wonderful array of touring acts.
All of these special features and more have given Bellingen a nationally recognised reputation as a cultural hub.
