Each is a vibrant and rich community with its own characteristics. Bellingen Shire has an abundance of natural assets that combined with our cultural attractions have created a thriving tourism industry. Numerous festivals, ranging from jazz, classical and world music, to environmental, food and wine events, attract distinct audiences, enhancing the social and economic fabric of the region.

Bellingen Shire Council (BSC) has an ongoing focus on service excellence for our community which has progressively transformed our organisation.

We are looking for people that are comfortable with change and would like to be a part of the changing face of BSC.
