Very friendly staff, very helpful when we phoned to make the booking. Quite a nice site on the banks of the river and fairly close to the beach. If your thing is four wheel driving you will enjoy the thirty kilometres of beach that are open to yo. We had a superior cabin, which was a bit of a misnomer... More

Thanks Michael for your review. Sorry about the Wifi we had a large storm that knocked out a repeater at your end, which has now been replaced. So Cabin 9 is good to go with Wifi again. The Village is 4.5 kms from the ferry, and the ferry is 5kms to the centre of town, or 12 kms to the... More

Second time staying here. I camp with my cat in a tent on a powered sit and we just LOVE IT! LOTS of spaces to camp and during school holidays they have lots of events happening. The sound of the ocean at night is so calming and relaxing. The amenities are clean and located perfectly. Two pools are crystal clear.... More

We stayed with friends over the June/July holidays in budget cabins and they are BUDGET. A little bit dated, the cabins are very basic but we barely spent any time inside. The queen mattress has seen better days and we ended up sticking one of the kids single mattress under one side to get a better sleep. The park itself... More

Hello and thank you for staying with us, and thank you for your review. You made very good points and I will follow up. We regularly change out the mattresses, however, sometimes we have to do it sooner if they have received more wear and tear. In fact we keep about 20 on hand and could have given you a... More

We've stayed a few times at Ballina Beach Village. It's a great location, sites are good and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

Hi Rob, thank you for your review and fair comments. Can I just point out that we have 3 amenities blocks, the newest one was built in December last year; the middle one is less than 6 years old and the older one near the pool that you are writing about was built in the 1970's out of concrete (could...

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... More

This was great accommodation and had wonderful facilities. Too bad we had only one night here as I could stay for at least a week. Cabins had all the comforts required for a pleasant stay. Too bad we missed out on the cafe as the menu looked great.
