Loved camping near the river and being so close to the cows . Dom and Jacqui were very welcoming and the paddocks were easy to access flat areas. Had a lovely paddle on the river with the kayaks provided by the hosts.

Best camping in Bellingen
There is no better spot than camping here in Bellingen. Peaceful, right on the water, and a short walk/drive in to town. Borrowed the kayaks and paddled down the river, fire pits with plenty of wood, made friends with the cows in the paddock. Will definitely camp here next time we are up! Thanks for the hospitality!

Great little spot
Very basic (long drop, yummy tap water at top of property) in a cow paddock so there is poop around (doesn’t smell). Cows were gentle… they do come near tents no biggie. Kids loved it. you’re also right on the river with easy access, kayaks you can borrow for a beautiful paddle, in a stunning spot and very very close to town! Food in Bellingen is outstanding. I’d stay again for sure!

Great views and very peaceful!
Beautiful spot to camp! Kayaked along the Belligen River with kayaks that the owners kindly provided. Water is clear and there's a rope swing. Lots of space and the cows make for an interesting time. We woke up to a bull bumping its head on my campervan lol. Thank you!

On a roadtrip from Sydney to Brisbane in a station wagon with a tent, nothing fancy and this has been by far my favourite camp so far! Dom was a really friendly guy and very helpful, there is also a store down 5 mins down the road which has everything you could possibly need despite its small size! The site itself was very secluded, clean and well kept. Camping on the river bank was great for relaxing, swimming, fishing and Dom even has kayaks available on the riverbank for campers use, which was the highlight for me. Would happily have stayed several more nights, highly recommend.

Great spot on the river straight across from the golf course, big grassy flat area with cows roaming. A little costly but worth it feeling miles away yet 2 minutes from everything.

Such a beautiful location on the river near Bellingen. Lots of camping spots to choose from and there was a long drop toilet we could use. Would stay longer next time so we couldspend more time exploring the area.

A beautiful setting and a very warm welcome by the host but there were more campers than we expected and I wasn’t prepared to be sharing the paddock with a herd of cows that raided a few campsites and damaged some of our neighbours camping gear. Facilities were also a bit light on with only 1 toilet that was over 500m away from where we camped. And be sure to keep your mouth closed if you swim in the river, the towns waste water treatment plant is upstream and very, very close.

What a experience, from start to finish Dom and Jackie were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We camped with a toddler, Dom ensured we where on a safe site and comfortable with the area. Would highly recommend.

Great location!
Fantastic camp spot beside a beautiful river. Hosts were friendly and gave us some fresh produce from their garden. Close to town, yet you feel so far away. Cows were not shy, and will enter your campsite…. and I would be hesitant camping in a swag/tent as they tend to trip over the ropes as they look for food. Nevertheless, it was still a great place to camp, swim and explore the local area.

This is a sweet camp - absolute riverfront views, a good swim spot, free kayaks, and really close to Bellingen town. The hosts, Dom and Jackie, are super friendly and so are the cows. Extra marks for Dom who pulled our caravan up the hill when the rain made it too muddy for us to do it. We'll be back.

Camping by Bellinger under stars
We camped by the Bellinger river by the kind offering of Dom and Jackie’s place. There were a few other campers each site about 50 meters between them. We had a camp fire and there was plenty of kindling to find around the property. It is a beautiful spot opposite the golf course and both quiet and private. There were kayaks available to paddle across to the buttery cafe. It is 3 mins drive in to Bellingen town and about half an hour to the Dorrigo info centre and start of the Wonga 2 hour hiking trail to waterfalls. We enjoyed a swim at Dangar falls also. The cows share the same paddocks and may visit your camp site as they did ours, so you may need to shoo them from rubbing up on your car. Jackie brought us some lovely fresh vegetables. We would definitely stay again.

Absolutely stunning spot. 20 min stroll into town (or 30 second swim across the river). Will 100% be back, especially for those delicious cucumbers 🥒 and chilli 🌶

A beautiful property with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. The river was nice and clean for swimming and kayaking. The roaming herd of cattle around the property was a bonus too! A great spot to stay, would definitely recommend.

Magical place…
Dom’s land is a lovely spot to stay. My boyfriend and I retreated to Bellingen after a busy Christmas and New Years and had the best time relaxing in the river - challenging each other on the rope swing, walking into town, driving up to Dorrigo national park and catching up with friends in nearby coastal towns. Friendly hosts who made us feel right at home. A highlight would be waking up to a rainbow the day before my birthday 🌈✨ This is a very magical place and I would recommend it!

Quiet and picturesque camp spot
This was a quiet and picturesque spot (even on New Year’s Eve!) right above the river and close to town. Dom gave us a warm welcome and showed us different options for where to set up. Other campers were friendly and respectful. It’s very basic but beautiful!
