33 kilometres from Kyogle to the Dam through beautiful farming country. On the northern edge of town, the road to Nimbin turns east, and the road to the dam goes west (turn into Anzac Drive at BP Garage off Summerland Way). There is 22 kilometres of sealed road, then 7 km of dirt, impassable after heavy rain. The unsealed road into Bells Bay, 2.5 kilometres past the dam wall, is narrow and steep inplaces, so drive slowly to the conditions. Steep section of road may not be suitable for large vans in wet conditions.
