Expo is all about the home... and more

THE Ballina Home Sweet Home Expo is on next Saturday at Ballina RSL from 9am-5pm.

It's a unique opportunity to see, compare and buy the latest homes, house and land packages, off-the-plan developments, land estates, or find out about home loans, tax advice and much more.

For anyone thinking of building or renovating, there will be a range of exhibitors to talk to.

There will be information on a grant of up to $25,000 to assist low to moderate income earners purchase land in the Ballina Heights, Cura A Estate and Wollongbar Urban Expansion Areas.

And for the creative home handyman there is the Tradies Challenge to build Ballina's best cubbyhouse. If you think you've got what it takes, go to and sign up.

You can sign up in a team of two.
