The town of Alstonville sits amongst green fertile hills on the plateau 15 minutes inland from Ballina. Its historic buildings, classic Australian architecture, galleries, cafes and teahouses make it a popular destination for visitors.

The area is known for its rich red volcanic soil that produces avocadoes, macadamia nuts, tropical fruits and coffee. The surrounding hills are home to secluded waterfalls and lush sub-tropical parks and gardens. The Victoria Park Nature Reserve is home to one of the last remnants of the Big Scrub - a vast rainforest which once blanketed the region.
