Ballina Beach is one of the many places in Australia, where European and Aboriginal heritage sites stand side by side. It is one of the few places that actively maintain both aspects of the area’s history. The shire makes it a top priority to keep everything as good as they were, not just for the tourists, but for the locals as well.
The Importance of History
The Ballina Shire Council offices are always open to discuss the care and maintenance of heritage items, buildings, grants, and development assessments in and around the site. For those in the history and culture preservations business, they know how hard it is to get that kind of attention towards their advocacies.
A Roundabout Way of Looking at Things
The way most people see the timeline to success is through a linear present to future view. The people of Ballina see success by looking at the present, learning from the past, and head straight into the future. It’s a little circular, but the reasoning behind it is sound.
Unlike most big Australian cities, Ballina does not have much in the way of industry except for service and tourism. We have many quality restaurants, beaches, and hotels, but those can only go so far. People want to do things on their holiday, and nothing brings meaning to a well-deserved break than visiting a cultural heritage site.
The Ballina Council believed that using its past to push their place into the future would be key to attracting crowds. After all, which vacation sounds better, a day at the beach or a day at the beach and a night visiting the Crawford House?
