Welcome to Bangalow
The quaint village of Bangalow sits nestled amongst rolling green hills of picturesque farmland. Modern life is combined with tradition in this Federation village, which makes for an elegant presence.
Surrounded by the character and charm of buildings of a bygone era, the village is the ideal setting for an unhurried morning brunch in a cosy café or a picnic in the park before you peruse the art galleries, boutiques and antique stores.
Take a leisurely sojourn on a Sunday morning to the popular and colourful Community Markets where local produce, clothing, and arts and craft are easily accessible.
The markets are frequented by locals and tourists alike, and the shady Camphor Laurel trees under which the stalls are set up enable one to meander in an unhurried state of amazement and wonder at what you will encounter next. Be stimulated by sight, sound and smell.
The inaugural Billie Cart Derby was launched as a celebration of the Pacific Highway’s diversion from the main street, and was such a success that it has become a mainstay on the annual events calendar.
Held in May every year, it is a vibrant and fun filled family event where the main street becomes a race track and billy carts of all shapes and sizes compete in this not-for-profit community event.
Festive atmosphere prevails each August when the annual Bangalow Music Festival is held, combining beautiful food with the music of world class musicians.
The museum at ‘Heritage House’ contains information about the locality along with a comprehensive collection of historical articles.
Bangalow is very much a close knit community, where visitors are welcomed as friends.
