Tranquil bushland village close to popular Bellingen centre
Your new home at RFBI Bellingen Masonic Village is surrounded by the bushland, birdlife and rural views for which the district is famous.
Bellingen is a picturesque town on the Bellinger river, at the foot of Dorrigo mountain. There is a strong sense of community here with group gardens, markets, art galleries, cafés and a lively social scene — with music festivals such as the annual Jazz Festival.
The village is a short stroll to the town centre and very much a part of the local community. The village is well known for having a very family feel, providing quality care and personal service, and many of the staff have been at the village for many years.
You can count on our compassionate and caring staff to listen to your needs in detail and provide the right options for you.
Everything you need is right here
