The Federal Hotel is a classic Australian pub steeped in rich history. The venue first opened for business in 1901, its name celebrating the Federation of the Australian States in that year. 

Throughout our 120 year history the Fed has been, and continues to be the cultural centerpiece of the character filled town of Bellingen, NSW.


Today, the town of Bellingen is renown for year round festivals, vibrant cafes and boutique retail outlets, while still maintaining the charm of yester year. 

We're located in the Coffs Coast hinterland, at the foothills of World Heritage rain forest featuring some of the tallest waterfalls and deepest swimming holes in NSW.


Our staff are welcoming and locals love to share a story or three. The Fed is a 'must visit' attraction for all visitors to the region.

Our award winning bistro serves generous sized, high quality meals. We’re renowned for our mouth-watering, locally sourced steaks and seafood, and our extensive daily specials board. 

The Fed is considered one of the best live music venues in the region showcasing touring and local artists every weekend of the year.
