Discover Ballina

With easy parking and river breezes, Ballina is the perfect combination of convenience and ease as a destination for shopping and services that are not available within the Byron Shire.

Ballina is centred on an island at the mouth of the Richmond River. It is a playground for beach lovers, surfers, boaties, anglers and eco-adventurers. It is also just a hop, skip, and jump, or more to the point a 15-minute drive down the freeway, from the Byron Shire.
