Bellawongarah is a locality in the City of Shoalhaven in New South Wales, Australia.[2][3] It lies west of the Princes Highway on the Kangaroo Valley Road between Berry and Kangaroo Valley. It lies about 23 kilometre north of Nowra and about 160 km south of Sydney. At the 2016 census, it had a population of 127.[1] It lies on a ridge and is partly covered by temperate rain forest and partly by grasslands that were formerly used for dairying, but are now mainly used for rural residences.

Bellawongarah had a state school from 1874 to 1944. It was variously described as a "public", "provisional" or "half-time".[4]
