The Bellingen Shire is a special and unique place enriched with a community of creatives and entrepreneurs, a deep sense of connection to culture and nestled amongst some of the world’s most majestic and precious natural environment. 

We know that tourism is a key market for our region, bringing much needed investment and vitality to our economy. Council holds a strong position on sustainability and wishes to extend this to tourism management to achieve a balance between the needs of residents, businesses and visitors.
