Bellingen has been described by Australian travel magazines as the new Byron Bay, but what locals have always known is there is something else, enchanting and untouched, that is unique to Bellingen alone.
Up the quiet Darkwood Road, along the Bellinger River and past a forest full of flooded gums, sits two houses and several acres.
From the wide deck area spanning three quarters of the house, is a view so close to the river frontage you could throw a stone into it. So close, if you wake up early enough, you can glimpse the elusive platypus in its natural habitat.
When the smell of fire warms the dusk afternoon, you can take solace inside this house built from Australian timbers. Due to its passive thermal design, in summertime too this house stays nice and cool.
But come night-time all year round, the stars and glow worms will be competing for your attention.
With surrounding Japanese-inspired gardens built up over 15 years and a 100+year old Red Cedar tree standing prominently in the front yard, here, nature and home are almost indistinguishable.
