Showers & Toilets

Campsites with showers near a beach in NSW in nature? Yes, you can have it all here at Ballina Beach Nature Resort. We even have rustic outdoor rainshowers so you can rinse off the sand and salt after a relaxing day on the beach. As an eco-friendly resort, our toilets use bore water, which can be discoloured, depending on the season. Don’t worry, the toilets are clean!

Please note that the Kids Club & Entertainment activities are only available during some School Holidays. Please contact us in advance to find out if they are running during your time with us!



Storytelling, hand warming, flame-gazing—camping just isn’t camping without the ritual of gathering around a crackling campfire. We have everything you need to set up your campfire in a brazier, including firewood and marshmallows (of course). Like all Aussies, we’re mindful of bushfire safety, so please only use our braziers and read our Campfire Terms & Conditions.
