The Beach

South Ballina Beach extends for some 30 klms from Ballina to Evans Head. Our guided beach trail rides are conducted on beautiful South Ballina Beach just 800 meters from the ranch. South Ballina Beach is a rare find on our fast developing coastline. During off-peak season the beach is virtually empty, no-one to be seen for miles, it’s very private. During peak season (long-weekends & school holidays) you will share the beach with just a small number of holidaying fisherman searching for that special spot on the beach likely to return a fish or two, but still quite private.

The House

The double-brick home features 3 bedrooms - main with walk-through robe and en suite, second and third bedrooms with built-ins, a second bathroom with separate toilet, laundry with built-in, split-level carpeted dining/lounge room with high-raked timber ceilings and exposed beams, sunken lounge with cosy open fireplace for the colder months, reverse cycle air-conditioning, and ceiling fans throughout. Sliding glass doors open onto landscaped gardens surrounding a large outdoor entertainment area overlooking this 100% usable property. The office with sunny north westerly aspect is conveniently located at the rear of the home overlooking the horse paddocks. With a new stainless steel solar water heater and two 22,000 litre rain water tanks attached to the main residence you'll be saving money from the moment you move in.

Outbuildings include a double car garage, a double workshop with attached sleep-out and separate shower and toilet, 10 horse stables, 7 horse shelters, and a large 3-bay machinery/feed shed with timber lined foaling bay and holding area.
