Tintenbar is a village located on the Far North Coast of New South Wales (in Australia).
Administratively it is part of the Ballina Shire. It is located about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) or a 9 minutes car drive north-west from Ballina along the Pacific Highway. Sydney, the state capital, is located approximately 750 kilometres (470 mi) or 8.5 hours car drive south from Tintenbar.
Over the past two decades the population of Tintenbar has increased dramatically. This has principally been the result of three large estates being constructed (Norfolk Park Estate, Oatley Park Estate, and Phoenix Park Estate). As of 2011 it has grown to 775 usual residents in an area of 21.7 kilometres2 - giving an average population density of 36 people per square kilometre.
