The Suburb

Ballina is a town in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, and the seat of the Ballina Shire local government area. Ballina’s urban population at June 2018 was 26,381. The town lies on the Richmond River and serves as a gateway to Byron Bay.

Established in the 1840s on the northern shore of the Richmond River, 20 kilometres south of Cape Byron, Australia’s most easterly point. A lighthouse, Richmond River Light, was first constructed in Ballina in 1866, which served as a significant port in the region. The temporary lighthouse was replaced with the current one, designed by James Barnet, in 1879, and first lit in 1880. It is still active. A branch railway line connected Ballina with the Murwillumbah railway line railway at Booyong. The line was opened on 24 August 1930 and closed on 12 January 1949.

Ballina serves as a tourism gateway to the close-by destinations of Lismore and Byron Bay. The town has access to several beaches, such as Shelley’s Beach, and to historical sites such as the Ballina Manor and the Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum, however its most famous landmark is undoubtedly the ‘Big Prawn’.

What We Did

Ballina War Memorial Pool was looking for seating to place around the pool.  The seating would need to be water resistant and provide a place for people both dry and wet to sit.  The air chairs unique design allows water to pass through, making the chairs easy to dry after use.  Their shape also provides remarkable comfort and as an added bonus the airy design will help with keeping you cooler and dry faster.
