Ballina Shire is a regional shire on the far north coast of New South Wales, with a current population of over 40,000 people. Ballina Shire is known for its pleasant subtropical temperature and golden sand beaches, all of which contribute to its popularity as a vacation and retirement destination.

Ballina has a rich Aboriginal and European history. The Bundjalung nation’s traditional Nyangbul Country is the Ballina Coast and Hinterland. In the Ballina Shire, the Nyangbul people have a special place. The Ballina Shire area has been under Nyangbul custodianship for hundreds of years. The Nyangbul people, along with all other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes in Australia, are part of the world’s oldest and most well-preserved culture. Visit the well-preserved heritage sites such as the Reconciliation Tunnel Murals in Black Head Angels Beach, or head on to the Lenox Head or East Ballina Aboriginal Sites to find out more about the aboriginal culture. 

Ballina’s European heritage dates back to the 1800s. Ballina, Australia’s most easterly point, was founded in the 1840s on the northern bank of the Richmond River, 20 kilometres south of Cape Byron. In 1828, the HMS Rainbow, commanded by Capt. Henry Rous, was the first ship to arrive in the Richmond River, followed by overland pioneers from the Clarence River. Because of the abundance of cedar trees in the area, Ballina became known for its cedar camps, which contributed greatly to its economic growth. There are still a lot of intact timber and cedar structures that can be visited by tourists. 

The town is surrounded by natural beauty and offers a diverse range of sights and activities. In the summer, visit the Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum, take a picturesque cruise on the Richmond River, kayak through the teeming wetlands of North Creek, or witness the annual humpback whale migration from any of the coastal headlands. The fishing at Flat Rock and Angels Beach is legendary, and if you cast a line from Ballina’s North or South Walls first thing in the morning, you’ll be in for a breakfast feast!

Ballina acts as a tourism hub for the nearby towns of Lismore and Byron Bay. The town has access to various beaches, including Shelley’s Beach, as well as historical monuments such as the Ballina Manor and the Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum. One of Ballina’s most popular landmarks by far would be the “Big Prawn”. 


Ballina is a laid-back community with a passion for all things outdoors. Ballina is a highlight in its own right, thanks in large part to its beautiful seaside surroundings, despite being known as the gateway to Byron Bay. Because of its thriving community and facilities, Ballina is a worthy candidate for your first home. 


With a typical house price of $820,000 and a robust price rise of 8.3% over the year, the tourist magnet remains the most expensive NSW market outside of Sydney. Ballina is emerging as a more affordable option to Byron Bay, according to economists. If you’re looking for an investment property, consider that homes in Ballina rent for $600 per week with a 3.5 per cent annual rental return and units rent for $450 per week with a 3.5 per cent annual rental yield. Ballina has witnessed a compound growth rate of 13.1 per cent for homes and 12.3 per cent for units over the last five years.

Because of its prime location and the continuous influx of tourists, Ballina claims one of the spots of the top regions to experience property price booms in the coming years. 

Pimpama is a suburb that has had a lot of expansion in recent years, with much more growth expected in the coming years. This is due in part to its proximity to both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, as well as its affordable pricing, which makes it perfect for both first-time buyers and investors.

It’s easy to miss when visiting Ballina that the town is surrounded by water, separated from the mainland by North Creek and the Richmond River. It is, after all, an island!

Ballina Shire offers  a long stretch of gorgeous coastline with something for everyone, including coastal treks, family-friendly patrolled beaches, isolated swim locations, some of Australia’s top surf breaks, dog-friendly stretches, and fishing spots.
