Ballina Historic Waterfront Trail

The Ballina Historic Waterfront Trail is made up of 19 interpretive plaques stretching along the walkway from Fawcett Park in the central business district through to North Wall. The trail provides insights into the historic importance of the Richmond River to the Ballina Shire's earliest European settlers and residents.

You may also spot the ever playful dolphins in and around the bridge and the mouth of the river. The end of North Wall is a great vantage point to Whale Watch in season and to see the local fishing trawlers going out to sea at sunset is nothing short of spectacular. The area boasts plenty of the best spots to catch the elusive fish of the Richmond River. Surf schools are often seen giving their lessons to beginners in the gentle surf rolling in from the ocean up the mouth of the river.
