Pimlico: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Frank Miles Bronze Fine Art Studio


Frank Miles bronze sculpture 'Steptoe' (Pelican) can be viewed at Lance Ferris wharf at Fawcett Park, on Ballina's Richmond River. Some of Frank's sculptures can be viewed at his gallery situated next to his studio in Alstonville. Works can also be ordered directly from his online gallery.

Frank is happy to provide a short tour of current work plus discuss techniques and designs, as well as private or public commissions. Frank remains very buoyant about art and so continues to create interesting and diverse sculptures. Everyone should have art around them, as it lifts the spirits and produces general well being.

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.

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.
