Location - North Coast - Ballina - New
TAFE NSW Ballina is located only a few blocks from the Ballina Fair and Ballina Central shopping centres, in the heart of the Northern Rivers region.
The Northern Rivers region is brimming with things to do on land and sea, and is renowned for its quality beaches like nearby Byron Bay. The township of Ballina is an expanding regional centre, located at the entrance to the Richmond River.
The campus is a warm and welcoming place to study, with a close-knit community of friendly teachers, supportive staff and a large multicultural population of students able to meet, talk, work together and immerse themselves in an academic environment full of limitless possibilities.
