Three Blue Ducks Is Opening Its Latest Farm-to-Table Outpost at The Lodge in Bellingen
NSW's mid-north coast will be home to its own Three Blue Ducks from later this year.
February 09, 2023
Three Blue Ducks is expanding its collection of popular farm-to-table eateries with a new road trip-worthy regional restaurant. Following the opening of a Snowy Mountains outpost in 2020, and the recent closure of its original Bronte location, the hospitality group has now turned its attention to the New South Wales mid-north coast.
Three Blue Ducks Bellingen will be located at the area's dreamy hotel The Lodge, becoming the group's sixth venue accompanying locations in Rosebery, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Melbourne and Nimbo. Set to open later this year, diners can expect all of the hallmarks of Three Blue Ducks at its latest iteration.
Located on the hotel's 16-acre gardens, the restaurant will serve up ethically sourced dishes highlighting local produce. Owners Darren Robertson and Andy Allen have been working with farmers from the region to source ingredients that will feature across the all-day menu.
"Sustainability and ethically sourced produce is a primary focus for us, and this ethos will continue with our menu offering in Bellingen," says Robertson. "The area and its surroundings is a melting pot of different flavours, ideas and innovative ways of presenting food, which makes Bello a must-visit location for food lovers."
Bellingen locals, hotel guests and tourists will all be able to head in for a classic Three Blue Ducks spread for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Accompanying the produce-heavy eats will be coffee from Single O, and a robust list of wines and beers from across NSW.
There will also be a separate functions menu, with the Three Blue Ducks team working with The Lodge to offer private events and catering for weddings.
The Lodge boasts 30 individual rooms, luxury glamping options, a pool with day beds and a bar, and five alpacas that wander the gardens.
Three Blue Ducks Bellingen will open sometime in 2023 at The Lodge, 1381 Waterfall Way, Bellingen — we'll update you with a launch date when one is announced.
