This interesting heritage trail takes in Ballina’s most historic precinct – Norton Street. Norton Street began as a bustling thoroughfare and transformed into Ballina’s most prestigious residential address. Gorgeous houses and buildings line both sides of the street, each with its own tale to tell.
A highlight of the walk is Ballina Manor Boutique Hotel, formerly North Coast Girls College, which also offers free tours of the house every day. Flanked by hundred year old Norfolk Pines, this leisurely walk is the perfect way to spend an hour discovering Ballina’s rich heritage.
A free guide to the Norton Street Heritage Trail, including maps and a brief history of each landmark, is available from the Ballina Visitor Information Centre, which is located on the corner of River and Norton Streets.
