Welcome to the Ballina Beach Village and Wilderness Camping Park - on the sea by the river. Experience Australian nature at its very best at our wonderful eco resort - where you are just a few minutes - walk to the beach from our modern cabins or shady wilderness camping sites. Our South wall is a world famous surfing stop!
Situated on 15 acres, you are surrounded by National Parks bursting with native Australian flora and fauna. Our local family of dolphins (who just love to go surfing) are reputed to be the biggest family pod in Australia with almost 150 members. At the Ballina Beach Village all you hear is nature - no road noise at all, but still only minutes from the cosmopolitan centre of Ballina.
During school holidays and on special weekends, The Ballina Beach Village has wonderful entertainment including African drumming, fire dancers, Irish folk bands and circus spectaculars. Look at our WOTS ON PANEL to see our next great event! The May Day long weekend will see the BIG RIVERS COUNTRY FESTIVAL at our venue, and the iconic and world class FESTIVAL OF FIRE is on the June long weekend.
Mermaids Cafe is open for dinner Friday and Saturday night during low season, and 7 days a week during peak season, and open for breakfast to lunch every day. Our well stocked kiosk is open 8am to 5pm, 7 days a week. We have great coffee and snacks all day.
Our small piece of paradise is also ideal for groups including weddings, social and sporting clubs, fishing and four wheel drivers, as well as family and friends reunions. Schoolies have a special schoolies only festival - check out our Number 1 event GOING TRIBAL. No matter how big your group, or what your special needs are we can accommodate you in fine style.
Enjoy the scenery, hire a bike and take the Tour de Ballina.
Plus we are pet friendly - and you can explore our wonderful 4 km leash-free walking track with spectacular views over the ocean and ...read more
Staff were really friendly and the food at the cafe was good. Self contained cabins didn't even have a chopping board or sharp knife. Playground needs massive overhaul. Pet hair on the couch too. Weekend entertainment was great tho and BYO booze works really well.
We had the most wonderful family holiday there - four generations of us.Some camped, some stayed in budget cabins, we stayed in the deluxe ones. Very nice. Just fabulous. We were looked after very well, we were able to take our doggie with us. The beach was divine, they had kids entertainment, they had live music - everyone was soooo welcoming to us. This is my gift to the Ballina Beach Village to thank them most sincerely for making this the best family reunion ever. Lilly. Ps. The food was delicious. Great chef.
