Welcome to Ballina Beach Village, Ballina Accommodation

Welcome to the Ballina Beach Village and Wilderness Camping Park – a boutique holiday and retreat destination 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, powered caravan or camper trailer sites, or shady wilderness camping sites. Our sites are very generously sized so you can spread your wings.

Our South wall is a world famous surfing stop!

We are family and pet friendly at all times.

Situated on about 20 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, Ballina Beach Village has wonderful entertainment including great Northern Rivers singer musicians, African drumming, and circus spectaculars. Look at our EVENTS PANEL to see our next great event!

Mermaids Café is open for dinner Friday and Saturday night during off peak times, 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, 6 days a week, to 2pm on Sundays. We have great Merlo coffee and tasty snacks all day.

Our small piece of paradise is also ideal for groups including weddings, retreats, 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 and feed you you in fine style.

Enjoy the scenery, hire a bike and take the Tour de Ballina along the picturesque South Ballina Beach Rd and River Drive or  you can explore our wonderful bush walking tracks.

We have fishermen’s shacks, backpackers lodges, budget and deluxe accommodation, powered, slab and wilderness camping sites. Want to know more – great ring our booking staff on 02 6686 3347 or send us an email to info@ballinabeachvillage.com.au
