The Dairy Bales is a private dwelling set on MooRiverFarm’s 45 acres of partly cleared & forested lush land, bordered by Bellinger River to the south & Dorrigo Heritage Park to the north. A crystal clear creek crosses onto the farm to the east which is where we access our clear, clean drinking water.  We’re situated 15 minutes from the Bellingen township to the south-east and 15 minutes up the mountain to the north-west behind us is Dorrigo’s rural township. Two very different destinations with a range of offerings. Far enough to feel miles from care yet near enough to take advantage of restaurants & cafes, waterfalls & walks. Relax and soak up the natural beauty of the gardens, the views and the sights and sounds of farm & bird life.

Your accommodation is the old dairy bales, converted into a charming one bedroom fully self-contained dwelling with a rustic style, approx 50m from the owners’ home and screened for privacy.


When you stay, you’ll be surrounded by heritage listed sub-tropical rainforest on the Dorrigo escarpment to the north, the Bellinger River to the south, and freshwater creeks on the east and west sides – bringing some of the most pristine drinking water through the property from the mountain to the river.

For the most part the owners live and work onsite growing a few modest crops including citrus, garlic, macadamia, tumeric, and coffee, whilst also caring for a few friendly free range chooks, jersey cows (paddock mowers), 2 farm dogs, 3 inquisitive goats, some busy bees  (Psst… all the animals just love to be hand fed!).
