A wood & stone house built on the banks of the Bellinger River. Decorated in an asian style that blends admirably with the houses unique shape. Very well equipped inside & out. An ideal dectination to relax a while.


Situated on 3 hectares underneath the local landmark, McGraths Hump, Serendip is truly a rural retreat. The Bellinger River passes a few metres from the back door. Ideal for swimming, fishing or canoeing. A platypus family have been sited nearby. A short pleasant drive takes you to Bellingen.

Bit disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Much further away from Bellingen than expected -along a windy and sometimes single lane road. House and kitchen equipment old and tired. Lovely spot on sunny days but way overpriced.

Had a great time chilling, relaxing, exploring, discovering birdlife and books and playing in the river. Amazing property - have to see it to believe. Perfect for a family retreat. Only downsides for us were price (high!) and the fact it's not actually in bellingen... Which kinda turned out well in the end but really it shouldn't be advertised as 'bellingen'.
