Beautiful Bello

The beautiful rural town of Bellingen is home to Camp Creative.

Bellingen – ‘Bello’ to locals – was once a dairy village. Today, it’s known for its eclectic mix of boutique shops, galleries, restaurants, cafés, and bars.

In Bello, you can find a vibrant community of artists, musicians, artisans, and festivals dedicated to music and the arts.

You can find Camp courses all over Bellingen. As well as the main venues, Bellingen High School and Primary School, courses run in community halls throughout town.

It’s an easy walk everywhere. Or get around on our shuttle bus.
