When you think of Summer on the North Coast what do you think of ?
At Alstonville Country Cottages we think of beaches, swimming and leisurely picnics eating fresh seafood.
Or watching the sunset over the river with a plate of local oysters.
But where is the best place to catch or buy your seafood?
Prawns and seafood
Or support the local trawlers at the Ballina Fishermen’s Coop. Locally grown and caught fish, crabs and prawns, near the Trawler harbour. Buy it fresh or cooked. Then head to a local beach or along the river for a delicious healthy picnic. http://ballinafishermenscoop.com.au
Also in Alstonville Trident Fish and grill has an excellent selection of local seafood to eat in or take away. All diets catered for. Try the great scallops…
If sitting overlooking the Richmond River at a licenced seafood restaurant is more your style, we recommend The Wharf Bar and Restaurant, http://wharfballina.com.au/ or The Point Bar and Restaurant at the the Ramada.
Lighthouse Beach Cafe overlooking the beach is another great spot for lunch.
Catching your own is a real treat.
Fishing along the edge of the Richmond River at Fawcett Wharf, off the rocks at North or South Wall are all great fun. Don’t have a licence? No problem you can easily buy a day licence from Ballina Visitors Information Centre.http://discoverballina.com.au
