Hotel Overview


Lily Pily is conveniently located five minutes’ drive away from Bellingen, half way between Brisbane and Sydney.

Rooms at Lily Pily

There are three individually decorated and furnished suites at Lily Pily, each architect-designed, airy and sophisticated. King and queen-sized beds and double spa baths still leave you with plenty of space, whilst the private veranda offers stunning views of the distant Dorrigo Mountains.

Food and facilities

You can expect to leave breakfast feeling full; Bruce and Jeanette always put out a hearty spread, featuring a wide range of cereals and fresh fruit, and customised hot dishes. Eat out on the terrace in summer, accompanied solely by the sounds of the birds and the flowing Kalang River. The guest lounge is very inviting, with large comfortable chairs, a cosy fireplace and an extensive library to surf through at your leisure.

Activities at Lily Pily

Get to grips with Bellingen’s laid back vibe and head out on a bushwalking or birdwatching tour (you might even spot an elusive platypus), or if you’re more into Australia’s beach scene, there are a dozen beaches nearby, perfect for surfing and swimming in. Alternatively, take a drive through the beautiful Waterfall Way to Dorrigo and visit the Dorrigo World Heritage Rainforests.
