The McGrath Ballina regional office is a full-service real estate office serving the eclectic north coast of Australia, from Evans Head to Ocean Shores. Our dynamic team of sales and property management staff specialise in rental properties and houses for sale in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lennox Head, Bangalow, Alstonville, Lismore and surrounding rural areas to provide the most comprehensive real estate service in northern New South Wales.
Surrounded by lush farmland, tropical fruit orchards and picturesque beaches, the north coast of New South Wales is characterised by a diverse collection of busy city centres and serene coastal towns. The historic town of Ballina is at the heart of the region, located at the mouth of the Richmond River system – the main "highway" of transporting local exports of cedar, sugar and dairy products to southern settlements in the 19th Century. Today, Ballina is still the transport hub of the region, connecting northern New South Wales to Sydney and Melbourne via the Ballina Airport.
Ballina and its surrounding towns Lismore and Wollongbar offer a wide variety of primary, secondary and tertiary education with private and public school systems, TAFE campuses and Lismore’s Southern Cross University campus.
The region also encompasses some of the most coveted holiday destinations in New South Wales, from the historic town of Bangalow to the surfer’s paradise of Lennox Point and, of course, the laid-back tourist mecca of Byron Bay – home to acclaimed resort The Byron on Byron. These assorted cultural hot spots give the region a diverse shopping experience with a mix of large shopping centres in Lismore and Ballina, funky boutiques in Byron Bay and the many colourful Sunday markets scattered across the coast.
With glorious beaches, waterways and a beautiful hinterland, Ballina and its surrounds provide the perfect "sea change,” “tree change” and “rain change” for those seeking a departure from urban and dusty Australia.
The McGrath Ballina office dominates the Ballina residential market, with a rapidly growing market share in surrounding areas such as Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Alstonville and Bangalow. In addition to our rural consultant, our unique team of sales staff specialising in Byron Bay, Byron shire and the Ballina area provide a comprehensive view of what the entire northern New South Wales region has to offer, for both seasoned and first home buyers.
