A handmade mud-brick family home built with love, creativity and just about everything recycled. This private rural property is set amid beautiful gardens on the Kalang river, with everything you need to feel at home, because it is a real home.


Come and enjoy a stay in our beautiful home.
Thirty years ago we were young and had a dream; to leave the city behind, design and build a mud home in the bush and have a few kids. So we moved to the Bellingen valley and did just that. Now the kids all live in the city and the trees we planted are full of fruit, the bedrooms are empty and we would like others to enjoy the place as we do.

Our unique property is just 6 km from the Bellingen township, with its vibrant country cosmopolitan atmosphere, full of music, art and small town friendly quirkiness, backed up with fabulous food, coffee and our very special open air markets, music festivals and camp creative.

Our home is a constant changing art work, always full of our festival and party sculptures, crazy dress up costumes hide in corners and cupboards, pottery, paintings and handmade stuff everywhere. There is even a 5 metre dragon living in the ceiling.

We hand built every brick, scrounged every window and door from the wreckers yards and put it altogether with attitude. The property sits on 4 acres on the Kalang River, the gardens are lush and green with sculptures and seasonal surprises everywhere. The bird life is awesome, Black Cockatoos live here all year, King parrots visit whenever there is fruit on the trees, Regent Bower birds, Kingfishers and our own resident pair of Buff-banded rails, just to name a few.

So if you’re looking for that unusual holiday stay, give us a try, our house offers many surprises. You can camp out down by the river, get up early to quietly look for our neighbourhood platypus. Sleep in late and listen to the birds and the quiet of the morning. You will always find a comfy place to sit, we have an abundance of couches and chairs in the sun, shade, or around our Scandinavian combustion fireplace.

We offer our home just as we use it, with its relaxed comfort and wish you to feel at home during your stay. If you're looking for a freedom furniture trendy retreat with manicured lawns, sparkling windows and rolled up towels this is not for you. The planet is too fragile to keep up with the latest trends in home wares, just use and enjoy our second hand and recycled stuff.

This home is available as a whole house suitable for 2 couples or a family of five/six. For a single couple there is a separate cottage on the property listed separately as ‘Mud brick & Stone Hideaway’.

Lovely, secluded, gorgeous place. Out of town but a nice distance out of town. Helen & Bruce were great hosts.

We are a family of four with two primary-aged children who really needed a holiday away from it all but wanted to be close enough to forrest and ocean to keep our days happy and full. Kalang Mud was absolutely perfect for us, and Helen and Bruce made sure everything was running smoothly whilst also giving us privacy and respect. It is a lovely home, warm and clean and welcoming. We highly recommend it.

Thankyou Helen and Bruce for your wonderful home. We had everything we needed and even managed to cope without a microwave! Such a fascinating home.... like being in an art gallery... Just loved it! The welcome muffins were such an unexpected delight. All the best and good luck with the new build at Nambucca.., can't wait to stay there. Kim, Warren, Tim & Jenny

Helen and Bruce's mud brick house in Kalang was everything we were hoping for. A beautiful, relaxing spot to while away the day, but close enough to Bellingen to duck out for dinner. Helen and Bruce made our family feel very welcome, with thoughtful touches everywhere, from having the fans already on when we arrived (on a stiflingly hot day), to beautiful, hand-baked banana and blueberry bread. Everything we needed was there, including a high hair and cot for our baby, a great selection of books and movies, and a comfy chair in every relaxing nook. We hope to return when next we're in Bellingen!

What a place! Absolutely brilliant! Totally exceeded our expectations....the place is amazing but the experience was great primarily because Helen and Bruce are lovely hosts. They are warm and easy going and really make you feel at home. The house is perfect: it oozes love and dedication. We loved their attention to detail, plenty of style and good taste. This is a place to truly relax. The birds, the trees and all the surroundings made us feel relaxed and in peace! The kids loved it!

We are a happy couple who enjoy life, art and good company. We have lived in Bellingen for a long time, raised a family here and now enjoy sharing our place with all sorts of lovely people, we know and love the whole area very much.
As hosts we aim to be friendly, generous and achieve the balance of being available and respectful to our guests needs for interaction or privacy. Time permitting we love our visitors to come to our home for a cup of tea or a glass of wine and share a story or 2 during their stay.
