Bellingen Lemon Myrtle Farm Stay is located on a working farm just five minutes drive from Bellingen. The farm grows Lemon Myrtle and Aniseed Myrtle trees which we distill into essential oils and are available to buy. We also grow other bush foods including Davidson Plums which my husband makes into jam, and Lilly Pilly berries which we turn into cordial. We also breed specialty Dorper sheep.
If you want to get away from it all and still be close to town this place is for you. Please read the entire booking before requesting to book.

We supply kayaks so you can kayak the beautiful Bellinger river. We regularly go fishing and crabbing. Jewfish, Mangrove Jack,Bbream can be caught around the corner. Punt available for fishing. Depending on the tide you can swim in the billabong or kayak out to the river to swim.
