Click to view Bellbrook


About an hour upriver from Kempsey is the historic village of Bellbrook. The road follows the Macleay River and there are a number of spots where the traveller has spectacular views of the river making its way through the valley. Although rather unassuming from the outside the Bellbrook Hotel is quite fascinating inside with many of the original features and much of the historic charm carefully retained. This village is classified by the National Trust as a heritage village and is easy to explore with a self guided tour. It is also the location of the childhood home of Slim Dusty
