About Ballina

Embrace Australia’s idyllic coastal lifestyle in Ballina, where the tranquil Richmond River meets sandy beaches, beachfront parks and exciting surf breaks. Ballina celebrates an array of outdoor activities with numerous wildlife experiences and national parks, but also boasts a range of museums, theatres and shops.

Things to do

Experience Ballina’s natural spoils on a cruise or kayaking tour down Richmond River, where you can see migratory birds and fish for bream, mullet and whiting. Prefer to stay on land?

If you’re visiting with kids, drive about 15 minutes to Macadamia Castle to enjoy train rides, playgrounds, mini golf and delicious macadamia-based meals. You can cuddle native animals, including a baby crocodile. Before the holiday’s over, organise a surf lesson and carve some waves on the 32-kilometre stretch of coastline.
