A Ballina Beach drive on Coffee Rocks is an adrenaline-pumping experience to consider on your next holidaying adventure!
Campr presenter, Hayley Wilson said the Motorama Ballina Beach tagalong trip is suitable for anyone with their fourbie. You don’t even need a permit to drive along the beautiful coast toward Evans Head. “There are a few first timers amongst our convoy of 70 4WD’s, a mix of Holden, Ford Mitsibuishi, Nissan, and Toyota, the full range on offer from across Motorama dealerships.” It doesn’t matter how much experience drivers have, the Motorma team is here on tagalong drives to help out and provide support to everyone.
“[Tagalongs] are fully supported by the crew who know these cars inside out. The team from Motorama and ARB have a look at the beach [beforehand] to make sure conditions [are] safe and to let drivers know what lies ahead,” Hayley said.
Hayley said driving through Coffee Rocks is a lot of fun and worth doing at your stay in South Ballina. “It’s a bit of an adrenaline rush that is for sure, trying to beat the waves, avoid the rocks, [and] make sure that we are on the right track,” she said.
Our Coffee Rock Driving Tips
While on the Ballina beach drive, Hayley took some tips from Motorama to share with our “Camprs” yet to experience the beauty of Ballina beach and Coffee Rock crossing.
Check the tide times before you hit the beach.
Look for the easiest line before heading across the top.
Take it slow and drive gently over the soft rocks.
If the rocks are steep pop the fourbie into low-range.
Look for oncoming cars coming back through the opposite way.
Perfect Ballina Beach Camping
If you are looking for a place to stay after hitting the amazing beaches in Ballina, look no further than Ballina Beach Village, a Campr and 4x4xMORE Club favourite. This Ballina Beach caravan park and campground is the perfect place for the whole family, even pets. With a new playground, fully enclosed off-lead dog area, and a licensed bar and cafe, there is something for every “Campr” at this Ballina hotspot.
Simon Clarke from the Motorama 4x4xMORE Club said Ballina Beach camping at the Village was a great place to give everyone some time to relax and have some time with family and friends. “[Motorama] really try to encourage these to be family-friendly weekends. We try and do one or two tagalongs but we leave plenty of time for you to sit around the campfire,” Simon said.
