Accommodation options in the Bellingen Shire are as diverse as the area itself – there’s a huge variety to suit all tastes and budgets.

Accommodation does book out quickly for the Camp, so it is a good idea to get it sorted when you make your enrolments. Across the Shire you’ll find country homestays, motels, country pubs, luxury cottages, whole holiday homes and B&B’s

Bellingen town has a well-equipped camping area at the local showgrounds.


Bellingen Showground is very popular every year and has ample room for tents and caravans.

Camp sites are available all year round at the Bellingen Showground & bookings are not generally required.

However for the Camp, the Showground does recommend that you plan ahead and contact them to make a booking enquiry.

You can get in touch with their Campground Officer on 0490 537 047 or visit their website
