    We want to give you the chance to meet people from different backgrounds and learn languages you’ve never heard before, and to share a meal with people you never would have met from countries all over the world. It’s about bringing together a group of people who shares only one thing in common: a desire to see the world.
    Our guesthouse is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Australia. We are minutes from beaches, pristine creeks, rainforest and UNESCO World Heritage listed areas. The guesthouse is a scenic riverfront building with a spectacular view.
    At the Belfry we offer an authentic Australian, country town experience. A way to really experience our Australian culture and way of living.

    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.
