Guide to Ballina

The linguistic roots of the town’s name is the subject of some debate ̶ some claim that it stems from ‘Bullina’ , a clan name of the indigenous Arakwal people, whereas other believe that it was introduced by Irish settlers as there are several namesake settlements in the Emerald Isle. Established by Europeans in the 1840s, its first landmark was the Richmond River Light, a lighthouse built in 1866 which is still active, and today it’s a popular holiday spot for Australians with great links to the rest of this preternaturally beautiful region.
