THANKYOU!! Panda. July 2015.

The park itself is great for kids! With a lowered speed limit, kids can ride around on their bikes or scooters. During the holidays the park also had many FREE activities for the kids which was fantastic – martial arts, kids club, circus, African drumming and a fire show. Miss El.  July, 2015.

The camp kitchen was fantastic! We cooked all our meals here during our stay and it is well fitted out – gas stoves, microwaves, sinks and a fridge. You can hire out a brazier for $10 a night, if you fancy toasted marshmallows. Rob. May 2015.

Ballina beach village has become our regular beach holiday destination because of its great dog friendly cabins. Lots of caravan parks are ‘dog friendly’ but still won’t allow pets in the cabins with you, but ballina beach village does! Lovely people. Clean, fresh, inviting cabins and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. There is a great dog beach 10km down the road ‘patchs beach’ that we love as well. Great spot highly recommend! Sally. June 2015.

 We picked this place specifically to spend a week away with our 2 dogs as they love the beach and road trips….They love going anywhere to be honest. We had a great time. It was very relaxing, beautiful drive to patches beach and the scenic drive around Ballina was very pretty. Danielle. 28.5.15.

We are a family friendly holiday village – please take time to look at our video below to see what happens at the Ballina Beach Village, Dolphin Bay.
