Explore with Bellingen Nature Tours
Deep immersion in the purest and most ancient of places.
With the greatest respect to the Gumbaynggirr people and their timeless country.
Your guide to Gondwana
Please join me for a deeply immersive experience across a range of private conservation playgrounds from the steamy lowland subtropical rainforests on the floor of the Bellinger Valley to the cool (and occasionally snowy) highest peaks atop the Great Escarpment at the edge of the Dorrigo Plateau.
Having lived, played and worked my entire career as an ecologist in the forests, rivers, wetlands and mountains of the North Coast of NSW, I have developed an intimate familiarity with what are some of the most ancient of ecosystems on the planet - literally windows back to the time of the dinosaurs and largely unchanged across many tens of millions of years.
I have the deepest of respect for the Gumbaynggirr custodians and these most remarkable of places.
I look forward to sharing some experiences of Gondwana with you,
Your choice of truly unique, exclusive and deeply immersive nature experiences - day-tours from Bellingen along the Great Escarpment to the highest peaks of the Dorrigo Plateau and the gorges of the Clarence River.
Tour the mountaintops
Experience ancient cloud forests rich in mountain-top relict species and the most expansive views imaginable.
Offering opportunities to explore some of the highest private mountaintops in Northern NSW along the Great Escarpment - the eroded remnants of the 20 million year old Ebor volcano.
Tour the lowlands
The cleanest of water and air; a riotous profusion of biodiversity; the tallest trees in the state.
The lowlands of the Bellinger Valley have some of the biggest and most impressive Subtropical Rainforests and the tallest Eucalypt forest in NSW.
Tour the gorges
The streams and rivers draining this ancient volcano are amongst the cleanest on the planet; they drain some of the wettest places in NSW.
With a rich diversity of fringing forests the gorges of the Gumbaynggirr nation offer a lifetime of incredible natural adventures.
