In the 19th century Ballina was the third-biggest port in NSW, and following WWII many ex-navy personnel took jobs in the shipyards here. The most interesting display is the actual balsa-wood raft that sailed across the Pacific from Ecuador as part of the Las Balsas expedition, which docked in Ballina in 1973.
