How To Get There

The Taste of Love Festival location is at 440 South Ballina Beach Road, South Ballina on the other side of the Richmond River. At current the ferry is still closed for renovations unexpected so you need to take a 5 min detour and drive there the land way if you are travelling from the North. If you are coming from the A1 South, simply take the exit to East Warden.

FROM BALLINA WITH CURRENT FERRY CLOSURE OR AFTER HOURS

Drive south to Wardell, and after the Wardell bridge take the first turn on the left into River Road – drive to the end (about 20kms) and take the last turn on your right into South Ballina Beach Road there is a small street sign pointing up the road that says CARAVAN PARKS. Go to the end until you see the flags.

TRAVELLING SOUTH (ferry reopens on March 16th)

There is a new Ballina Bypass that has just opened. The quickest way to get to us now is to stay on the freeway, and take the 2nd Ballina Exit (River Street, but not Tamarind Drive that will take you through Ballina). Take the left hand exit at the roundabout interchange as you come off the freeway and head north. You will come to the first roundabout, and take the right hand road into Burns Point Ferry Road (you will be able to see the Big Prawn on your left one block up). Drive on to the Ferry (leaves every few minutes, drive on drive off, $6.50 per vehicle). Alternatively one can take use a 20 min detour and stay on the road instead. Take the first left hand turn into South Ballina Beach Road., we are the last place on the right, look for the flags on the fence.

TRAVELLING SOUTH THROUGH BALLINA (ferry reopens on March 16th)

If you want to do some shopping on your way into Ballina, take the first Ballina exit which is Tamarind Drive exit, and follow the road into Ballina. You will find the main road passes between two major shopping centres (Ballina Fair should be on your right). To get to us, follow the signs pointing to Grafton (i.e. head south), as you head down river drive you will cross the river, then see McDonalds on your left, and a few blocks down THE BIG PRAWN will appear on your right. Take the next left after the Big Prawn called Burns Point Ferry Road., go to the end, drive onto the ferry and cross to the other side. Alternatively one can take use a 20 min detour and stay on the road instead. Take the first left into South Ballina Beach Road., and to the end until you see the flags.

TRAVELLING NORTH ON THE PACIFIC HIGHWAY

Turn right into River Drive, before crossing the Wardell Bridge. If you cross the bridge then you will have to go all the way to Ballina. When you turn into River Drive, keep the river on your left until you come to almost the end of the road (just before the ferry launch area) and turn right into South Ballina Beach Road (there is a small road sign saying caravan parks).

THE BALLINA FERRY ACROSS THE RICHMOND RIVER (ferry reopens on March 16th)

Most people, visitors and locals alike use the ferry to cross the Richmond River, which is at the end of Burns Point Ferry Road, about 10 minutes from the centre of Ballina. The turn off is left, off the Pacific Highway about 300m south of the Big Prawn complex in West Ballina. After a brief ferry ride, take the first turn left about 200m from the ferry. Our Park is the second one along about 4.4km (please note we are not SEABREEZE Caravan Park). Just a note about the car ferry, it happily takes very large rigs but if you have a low riding towing vehicle, then be sure to pull off and inspect the ferry access prior to getting on just in case you think it will bottom out. We recommend that you cross onto the ferry using a diagonal approach to minimize scrapping if you do take the ferry and to come at high tide if you have concerns, when there is less of a dip onto the car ferry bed.

The ferry operates from 5.30am to MIDNIGHT daily. Alternatively one can take use a 20 min detour and stay on the road instead. 

It is only closed on the second Tuesday of each month from 9am to 12 noon.

The 4 minute trip across the Richmond River is well worthwhile just for the tranquil view it gives of Ballina itself and really sets the mood for your beautifully relaxing break at our wilderness holiday park.
