Turtles Café & Kiosk
Grab a barista-made coffee or take a break from cooking at our fully-licensed Turtles Café. Dine-in or take away a delicious meal from the contemporary menu, showcasing local ingredients. (We recommend booking as tables are highly sought-after!)
Sunday – Thursday 8.30am – 5pm Friday – Saturday 8.30am – 8.30pm *School holiday and off-season hours may vary
During peak periods, we host fantastic local food vendor trucks for themed nights from paella to pizza and everything in between.
Relax and reconnect over an evening cocktail at our easy-going Sunset Bar. During summer, our Friday-night Sunset Sessions are a bit of a thing with 5pm Happy Hour and live acoustic music from talented local artists.
Our Resort Shop, located in the Turtles Café, has basic camping supplies such as milk, bread, fishing tackle and ice creams, as well as our camp-favourite barista-made coffee and milkshakes. Forgotten something? Despite our faraway feel, we’re less than 5 kms to the nearest shopping complex where you’ll find Bunnings, Westower Tavern, Dan Murphy’s, Spar Supermarket, newsagents, doctors and a pharmacy.
When it comes to camping facilities, we’ve thought of everything in our camp kitchen, so you don’t have to! Open 8am – 9pm daily, this large, open-plan resort facility features a soaring ceiling and plenty of indoor and outdoor communal seating. With multiple stoves, BBQs, ovens, sinks, microwave, kettle, toaster and utensils, DIY cooking is effortless while meeting and making new friends
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!
Holiday Resort Sporting Facilities
Looking for a holiday resort with sporting facilities? Our sports and wellness facilities are powered by nature with a fitness circuit, rest and meditation spaces, a meditation garden forest and ample walking tracks to enjoy. Click here to explore our nature experiences.
The resort’s two in-ground swimming pools are surrounded by an expansive deck, complete with shaded areas and lounge chairs. Grab a towel, the kids and your book and relax, do some laps or simply dip and refresh.
Burn off some of their vibrant energy at the tree-fringed sandpit playground. With a variety of nature-inspired play equipment, climbing net and trampolines, there’s plenty of fun to keep them occupied.
Kid’s Club & Entertainment
During school holidays, our Kid’s Club gives you a break while keeping them entertained with arts and crafts. It’s all about sharing, creating, and making new friends! The kids can also ride go-carts with the big kids (a.k.a. Mum or Dad) and even meet furry and scaly friends during our Wildlife Educational Program, run by the famous Wildlife Twins.
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.
Our laundry resort facilities, located in the main Amenities block, include coin-operated washing machines and dryers that take $1 coins ($5 per load). There are also irons and a clothes line for air drying in nature. Change is available from the Resort Shop.
The Shala Function Space
Nestled away in lush, tranquil bushland, you’ll find The Shala function space for weddings, corporate events, yoga retreats, sporting groups and more. If you’re planning a gathering, contact our team to find out about our space and catering packages, or head to our Group Bookings page for more details.
