BELLIN­GEN

Country Style - - MY COUNTRY CHILDHOOD -

About 30 min­utes’ drive in­land from Coffs Har­bour on the mid-coast of NSW, this town sits on the beau­ti­ful Bellinger River, in a val­ley of emer­ald green at the base of the Great Di­vid­ing Range. A cre­ative and en­gaged com­mu­nity sees an in­ter­est­ing mix of en­ter­prises in the main street: old, new, un­con­ven­tional, tra­di­tional and a lit­tle boho. The Ham­mond & Wheat­ley Com­mer­cial Em­po­rium build­ing, fin­ished in 1909, is one of the few ex­am­ples of this com­mer­cial build­ing type left: pop in to ad­mire the pressed metal ceil­ings and cedar join­ery.
