Billinudgel is a town in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, and is part of Byron Shire. It used to be a railway town with many fruits and vegetable loaded onto the local railway. Since the railway is no longer used in Billinudgel, it has nearly joined to the nearby town of Ocean Shores. The area was bypassed by a heavily upgraded Pacific Highway in July 2007.
Billinudgel has a mild climate with winter frosts and warm wet summers.
The name Billinudgel is derived from Bundjalung Bilihnadhihl, meaning "once belonged to a parrot".
