My two teen kids and I have stayed here several times over last few years. Sometimes on short notice. We have stayed at other properties in the area but quickly realized the Value for money at Coast Inn. The staff are extremely friendly and always want to ensure your stay is as good as it can be. We have stayed here several times and will be back many times in the future I am sure.
Driving into Ballina for the first time ever we were not sure what to expect from the map location. However this town is very picturesque and even though we were only there for a short time there was plenty to see and do. We enjoyed the beaches, the lighthouse, the quiet river inlet where people swam and fished from the edge as well as the main shopping precinct , the Big Prawn and the vehicular ferry.
Ballina, located on the North Coast of New South Wales, is a major service centre of the Pacific highway, and a popular holiday destination. The spectacular coastline along warrants a visit to the region, stay in our Ballina accommodation to discover the rest of Ballina’s many charms.
Ballina has one of the best stretches of coastline on Australia’s East coast, with its beaches and headlands a major drawcard for holiday-seekers and surfing enthusiast’s alike. From your Ballina hotel head to white sands of Lighthouse, Shelly or Angels Beach, the Pacific Ocean provides excellent surfing conditions almost the whole year round.
Ballina is also home to one of Australia’s iconic ‘Big Things’. The Big Prawn (the biggest model prawn in the world) is made of concrete and fibreglass and can be seen on the horizon some kilometres before you reach the transit centre and restaurant that it sits atop. Be sure to check out the Big Prawn during your stay in our Ballina hotels, stop in at the restaurant or seafood market and try some of the fresh Ballina seafood.
