We stayed here between 25-28 April 2013.
We were a large camping group (SE Queensland Campers) with adults, a few kids and a few dogs. We had a wonderful time. The activities were fantastic, yoga every morning, activities for the kids (and the dogs) during the day and music entertainment in the evening and all inclusive of the camp fees. It is a wonderful secluded location. I drove over on the ferry on Thursday and didn't leave until Sunday afternoon. Admittedly I have been to Ballina before and didn't need to discover the town. First time my son had been on a car ferry and it was very quick, first time for the car too. Build a bridge but why, it adds to the experience.
The staff were awesome, usually you arrive at a campsite they draw on a map and say this is your site and off you go. Here Bruce escorted us to our site and mapped out which was our plot and advised the best place to pitch the tents. I stayed at one of the gazebo camp sites and being a large group it was wonderful to have a communal area to meet, fabulous idea. All caravan/camping parks should have these.
I couldn't believe that staff were cleaning the amenities at midnight. Blew me away, usually amenities blocks get cleaned once a day but not here. I take my hat off to a park that cleans many times a day.
I would come back here in a heart beat. Rikki even put on the absolutely fantastic weather we had all weekend, which made for an awesome weekend.
Thanks again and I'm sure our group will be back again or I will anyway.
Happy Birthday again Rikki and thank you so much.
sorry we camped so not sure what the cabins were like. They looked awesome from the outside.

Thank you so much for this wonderful, wonderful review. You should be a travel writer - I feel as though I have been transported. If I didn't know the Village, I would through your wonderful words. You have a gift for painting word pictures. We (the staff) had the most BRILLIANT Anzac weekend - it was just mighty. Happy families and singles everywhere (boy, were we busyyyyyyy - phew) but what a great joy to all the staff to have such wonderful reviews. Just to let you know I print all of these reviews out and give them to the staff so that we all know what our guest are thinking and feeling. So thank you - and we loved it just as much as you did. The S.E. Queenslanders were a great bunch (thanks Brij and Zoe for bringing them here). All I can say is come again soon. You are a super special group. Kindest regards and many blessings, Rikki, Ballina Beach Village.
