The Bellingen Shire is a rare and special place, host to a plethora of creativity, with an engaging culture.

Whilst visitors bring much needed investment and vitality to our economy, it is important to understand and address the challenges that the growth of tourism brings.

We know that tourism is a key market for our region. 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.
