Ballina Airport Mini Guide
Ballina is almost on the border of New South Wales and Queensland meaning that you can explore both in your hire car. Near the town is Byron Bay which is the most easterly point on the Australian mainland. There’s much to see and do in the area.
Most people go to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area spending their days lazing on the beautiful secluded beaches or enjoying the excellent fishing on the creeks of the Richmond River. The climate is perfect there with warm temperatures all year round and with summer temperatures in the eighties. There’s much more to see in the area too.
For those with a sense of fun, Ballina holds the record for the largest concrete and fibre glass prawn mounted on top of the Big Prawn snack bar! Hiring a car from rhinocarhire.com will enable you to explore yet further afield. Brisbane
in Queensland is less than two hours away and if you take the coast road, you’ll be rewarded with unspoilt coastlines and plenty of little coves to cool off in.
The town is noted in history for it was where Charles Kingsford Smith crossed the Australian coast in his plane ‘Southern Cross’, completing the first non-stop crossing of the Pacific. There too, the balsa wood rafts of the Las Balsas expedition came ashore after sailing across the ocean. It’s the perfect place for a long weekend, so book your flight, accommodation and your car hire today.
- Ballina Byron Gateway continues to grow in terms of passenger numbers and work is about to start on revamping the terminal as well as constructing a separate taxiway onto the runway and providing improved facilities inside the teminal to speed increasing numbers of passengers through the airport process.
