Coastal Living

Resort Town

The coastal resort town of Ballina is known for its pristine surfing beaches and laid back coastal lifestyle, as would be expected from a large regional town with a population of over 26,000, Ballina has a large selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, and pubs, there is also a good selection of schools, medical facilities, and a small hospital. The town's population swells at Christmas as it is a popular destination for holidaymakers and thereby giving a boost to local businesses. Ballina serves as the gateway to the Northern Rivers and has access to the hinterland where you'll find lush rainforest and rolling hills, and more great beaches, from there you can discover the delights of Bangalow, Byron Bay, Lennox Head and Newrybar. Just a short drive from the centre of town is the Ballina Byron Gateway airport connecting the region with major transport hubs such as Sydney and Melbourne.
