Ballina Surfing Beaches


Whether you're a toddler dipping your toes in for the first time, or a world-class surfer, with over 32 kilometres of coastline to choose from, it's easy to find the ideal swimming or surfing spot in Ballina.

There are calm sandy beaches and shoals on the banks of the Richmond River, rising swells perfect for a body bash at one of the many beaches and there are often perfect barrels rolling of North Wall and the world famous right hand break at Lennox Point.

There are beaches that allow four wheel drive vehicle access and some that allow dogs and horses. Local operators offer horse riding on isolated beaches, both north and south of Ballina. It's the stuff that postcards are made of.

Creative Artisans Gallery


Creative Artisans Gallery is all original work with most of the items such as the jewellery, woodwork and silk, being 'one-off' designs.

The gallery aims to showcase original creations and artwork from local artists and artisans. It is owned and managed by local women who have lived and worked in the shire for many years.

Purchasing artwork from the gallery ensures an income for the artisans, and local suppliers and creates jobs within the community. There are so many very talented people who do not have the opportunity to have their work presented for sale on an ongoing basis - not just in exhibitions that may last from a couple of days to a month.

The Northern Rivers region is acknowledged for the strength and diversity of its creative industry sector, particularly in relation to the visual arts. The NRCG serves as an essential vehicle through which this burgeoning artistic sector can be supported and nurtured.

The NRCG provides a facility for a diverse range of programs of local and touring exhibitions, education programs and cultural events; showcasing unique, high quality works made by regional artists, craftspeople and designers.
