Tassiriki Ranch, Empire Vale

Nestled amongst the cane fields on the North Coast of New South Wales, holidays at Tassiriki Ranch combine a farm-stay experience in a relaxed rural atmosphere with the opportunity to experience the un-spoilt natural beauty of South Ballina beach. Relax in comfortable self-contained holiday cabins just a short walk to forty kilometres of uncrowded pristine beach and blue ocean stretching from South Ballina break-wall in the north to Evans Head in the south. During off-peak season the beach is virtually empty, no-one to be seen for miles, it’s very private. During peak season (long-weekends & school holidays) you will share the beach with just a small number of holidaying fisherman searching for that special spot on the beach likely to return a fish or two, but still quite private.

Sorry we do NOT hire our own horses for beach and trail rides. However, we conduct horse awareness and riding lessons for adults and children over 10 years of age, and lead pony rides for younger children. These activities are all carried out on the property in a fenced arena.

At Tassiriki Ranch we also have accommodation for your horse so you can experience a beachside holiday together. Comfortable self-contained holiday cabins with facilities for horses located just over the sand dunes from one of the best beaches in Australia where horse riding is permitted. Tassiriki Ranch offers a unique and economical farm-stay and horse riding experience. Located just 75 minutes south of the Gold Coast, Tassiriki Ranch is the perfect holiday spot for horse enthusiasts living in South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales looking for beachside holiday accommodation where you can take your own horse with you on holiday. Horse riding holidays with your own horse and your friends, galloping along the golden sandy beach and swimming in the sparkling blue ocean. Stay a day, a night, a weekend, or as long as you’d like. You can even park your float on site and leave your horse at Tassiriki Ranch while you continue on to enjoy other places.

Although Tassiriki Ranch promotes itself primarily as a horse riding holiday location we are happy to accommodate guests without horses. Our non-horseriding guests can still take advantage of the our comfortable facilities and close proximity to the various holiday activities available nearby.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes. See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
