South Ballina - Patches Beach
About the Track
Track Description

A fairly easy beach drive at low tide.  It\'s possible  to drive from South Ballina to Evan\'s Head depending on the tides.  About halfway along there is a rocky section, which is easy at the bottom of the tide, but  however we had to turn back at a rocky section as the tide was too high  - if we had waited another half an hour we could have driven through like we have done on previous occasions.  Occasional there is a 1m step from some of the access tracks to the beach - particularly after the spring tides.


Access is either from the Ferry at Ballina or via a number of access roads.

961 Beautiful Beach. Not to busy and plenty of room. The rocks can be crossed by a high lifted 4x4. Or, wait untill low tide. Close to amenities and the camp ground is only 100 metres off the access track. Watch your tide times because in some places, the tide will swallow you whole!! There are several access tracks off the beach at various points. Nissan Patrol Feb 27, 2012
