The Macleay Valley Hinterland is a wild and natural area with a rich indigenous, agricultural and musical history. Exploring this neck of the woods requires a bit of initiative and an adventurous spirit, so don your Akubra (or pick one up from the Slim Dusty Centre gift shop in Kempsey) and get ready to be surprised.
Make your way to the heritage town of Willawarrin and take the historic walk, stopping to marvel at the interior of the Willawarrin Hotel, which was built in 1893.
Further along, explore the heritage-listed village of Bellbrook, a timeless place that reflects an era when bullocks still pulled logs down the main street. Soak up the olde-world atmosphere at the perfectly restored Bellbrook Hotel, where you can enjoy a pub meal and a chin wag with the locals
