Bellingen – Part 4

North of Gleniffer wound the Promised Land loop. A name like that generates high expectations. Let’s see what we found.

Rolling pastures and rainforested hills.

Old wooden bridges over a clear, cold stream.

Never Never Creek that would be a perfect place to cool off on a steamy summer’s day.

Bellingen – Part 3

Ten kilometres north of Bellingen lies the hamlet of Gleniffer, in the vale just below the Dorrigo escarpment. It’s a good place to go on a leisurely drive or cycle. Last time I was here was over 10 years ago, but it hasn’t grown much since.

The community was built on dairy, and there were still a few cows grazing although they were more beef cows.

There was a cute church.

And a hall. And not much else. But everything was well-kempt, meaning that there must be an active community hereabouts.
