About our Ballina campus

Ballina TAFE 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.

Our innovative campus is home to a state-of-the-art maritime section with simulated training equipment and an operational boat for practical lessons. Here you will find specialised learning environments for nursing, retail and business as well training programs for general education, information technology and welfare.

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 in the Bundjalung Aboriginal nation.

If you’re looking to enter the workforce armed with invaluable experience and practical skills, check out the courses available at our Ballina TAFE Campus.
