    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Bellingen is a wonderful town to come for a cultural exchange. Our stay allows travellers to experience life in a small, friendly, country town first hand. You can learn about our local wildlife species, environment and indigenous culture. We in turn greatly enjoy learning from you about your culture, your home country and sharing our stories about our love of travel.

    We are located in the picturesque town of Bellingen in northern NSW. Our guesthouse overlooks the Bellinger River and is moments from wonderful cafes and quaint shops. We are half an hour from UNESCO listed Dorrigo National Park and 20 minutes from the beaches of the Coffs Coast.
    Our 10 room guesthouse is situated in a character filled, three-story, freshly painted weatherboard building and has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
    The position requires you to help 2 hours per day house-cleaning. This help is in exchange for free accommodation, wi-fi and use of all our hostel facilities, bikes etc. We would prefer people who can commit to at least 2 weeks at our hostel.
    We look forward to hearing from you.

    We have an abundance of swimming spots in and around the town, from rivers to waterfalls to the ocean and back.
