Looking to getaway and try something different? We found some really cool experiences that will revive your insta feed at the same time revive your mind, body and spirit!
FEEL FLIPPIN’ AWESOME
Did you ever want to run off and join a circus? or you love challenging yourself and having an absolute ball at the same time? Head to the alternate town of Mullumbimby (Mullum to locals) and visit the Spaghetti Circus. They offer specialty circus training and classes on the teeter board and unicycle as well as juggling, amazing handstands, the German wheel (pictured above), bounce and aerial skills. You’ll get some seriously unique insta-worthy shots here!
RIDE THE WAVES
We loved the feeling you get from riding the waves on horse back. The sea breeze, the spray of the water and the energy you get from both the waves and the beautiful horses from Zephyr makes this a real exhilarating experience. The horses are so gorgeous – you can see how much they love being in the waves, and here you are enjoying it together – beautiful memories to share for sure!
ENJOY THE HIGH LIFE
This takes a sky high experience to another level – you feel yourself soar above the most breathtaking coastline, floating above the waves, the fields and the mountains. Anyone with a sense of adventure will really enjoy this experience. It’s like a tandem bike ride, only up up up in the sky! Poliglide are the team in the Northern Rivers to make this happen for you.
CATCH YOUR DINNER
Head to the idyllic fishing village of Evans Head (just 40 minutes south of Ballina) for a quiet, laidback lifestyle and venture out on a deep sea fishing charter with Evans Heads Head Fishing! We suggest getting a group together and take advantage of their mid-week packages that include accommodation and fishing charters. If you dream about escaping and going fishing – this is the ultimate experience. Your mates will be so envious of how BIG your catch is!
RELEASE YOUR INNER PICASSO!
Fancy yourself the artist? or not! It doesn’t matter whether you have any artistic flare, or just a willingness to have fun and sip wine. Pinot and Picasso help to bring out the artist in you with step-by-step instructions to create your own completed canvas to take home. Your friends will be amazing – now that’s something worth sharing!
LAP UP THE VIEW
Hovering over the sand with prime beach views, the Lighthouse Beach Cafe in East Ballina delights you on so many levels. The owners are born and bred locals, the food is local and the view is to die for. We felt we could reach out and touch the waves! Great food – tick, location – tick, tick, tick! It is very popular with the locals so book, book, book!!!!!
LIVE THE DREAM
Turn back the clock to the 1970’s, pick up your decked out Combi Campervan and take off where ever your heart desires. The fridge is stocked with goodies, you have everything you need on board and you’re set for a wild time exploring the region. The guys at Retro Campervans allow you to get off the beaten track so you can share your most adventurous moments!
FIND YOUR FREEDOM
Whether it’s a drive down picturesque country roads, getting adventurous in World Heritage-listed national parks, or spending the day at an uncrowded pristine beach! The Richmond Valley is your escape from the stresses of life where you’ll find small towns each with their own personality, each with their own sense of adventure! Find your freedom – you are here, you’ve arrived and it feels like a world away from anywhere!!
