West Ballina

Welcome! Take in the stunning beaches, coastal plains, rivers and streams of Northern Rivers while you're in West Ballina.

West Ballina Vacation Packages

From West Ballina, it's 16 miles north to the center of Byron Bay.

You should be delighted to know that you have a selection of attractive beaches at your fingertips. Burleigh Beach, 55 miles to the north, and Kurrawa Beach, 60 miles to the north, are two great options.

When it's time to reconnect with the natural world, round up the family and head to Tyagarah Nature Reserve, located 18 miles away from West Ballina. Another good option is Lismore Visitor Information Centre, 16 miles away.

Experience the natural world at Pat Morton Lookout. It's not far away and perfect for those seeking some peace and quiet.

Ballina, 2 miles to the east, is a popular locality. Make a stop and see Shelly Beach and Lighthouse Beach. An additional option is South Ballina. It's about 3 miles away from West Ballina, and is the home of Ballina Golf Club and Ballina Visitor Information Centre.

Around 4 miles to the east of West Ballina is East Ballina, a regional hub where you'll discover Lennox Head Surf Life Saving Club, Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre and Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum. Don't head back until you've also gone to Ballina Racecourse and Ballina Fair Shopping Centre.

If your perfect vacation doesn't only involve relaxing by the pool, have a shot at mountain climbing and hiking.

We all need to take some time to relax every so often. Coincidentally, this area has some lovely ways to do just that. Feel all the stresses of daily life melt away while you're shore fishing and beach combing.

If you've explored every land-based activity that Northern Rivers has to offer, you should try sky diving for a new perspective.

An invigorating few hours at the water is an important part of a trip, and swimming and wind surfing are just two of the more fun ways to cool off in Northern Rivers.

There are few things more inspiring than a getaway in a breathtaking place, however, the time will eventually come when you'll need to head back home. Rather than feeling sorry that your West Ballina trip is drawing to a close, why not start drawing up plans for the next one?

Once you're ready to catch your flight, remember that the closest airport is roughly 3 miles northeast.
