Yamba: Your Own Personal Paradise

With approximately 6,000 year-round inhabitants, Yamba is a quaint coastal town ideal for an easy getaway for Sydneysiders. Yamba is set within New South Wales right on the coast and at the mouth of the Clarence River. The climate in Yamba has been named as the best in the world by both Stanford University and the CSIRO, which means there is never a bad time to visit this locale. The protected environments that surround Yamba make for beautiful scenery, while the coastline is untouched and a natural beauty in and of itself.

Cast a Line in Yamba

The fishing in Yamba is top-notch and versatile enough to accommodate fishermen of many skill levels and interests. If you want to give fishing a shot, hire a boat and head off the coast to take part in a deep sea fishing excursion to catch tuna, marlin, snapper and other big fish. The local saltwater estuaries offer a variety of both freshwater and saltwater fish, as well. Head to the coastline to fish right off the beach and high rocks. The deep water marina of Yamba also offers a unique fishing opportunity.

Protected Lands beyond the Coast

Yamba is guarded by three protected areas, ensuring lasting beautiful scenery and plenty to do inland. Venture to Bundjalung National Park to the north of Yamba to mountain bike, walk along trails, wade in the freshwater lagoons or explore the ocean, which is accessible from the park. To the south of Yamba, Yuraygir National Park provides a vast amount of space that is ideal for camping and exploring all throughout the day. Finally, Banyabba Nature Reserve provides approximately 15,209 hectares of land that is mostly dedicated to wilderness, which makes this the perfect location to see many species of Australian wildlife undisturbed in their natural habitat.

Enjoy the Blue Waters

The waters and the beaches around Yamba are always booming with activity. With eleven beaches, however, the activity is spread out to provide plenty of room for locals and holidaymakers alike. Bringing children along is never an issue, thanks to many safe swimming areas for kids. Popular activities further out in the water include catamaran rides, snorkelling, rock pooling, kite surfing and kayaking. If you are feeling adventurous, dive off the coast of Yamba, and catch your own prawns for dinner. If you didn’t bring your own gear along, there are many places near the water where you can rent all of the equipment you need.

Stay Inland

While Yamba is a breathtaking area that offers plenty for outdoorsmen, there is also quite a lot for those who prefer in-town activities. Visit the Raymond Laurie Sports Centre to partake in many of the offered sports or to get a full body massage. At the Yamba Bowling Club, enjoy bowls, bet on sport or eat a meal. Check out the Yamba Lighthouse to take in beautiful coastal scenery while learning the history of the area. Throughout downtown Yamba, you have the opportunity to check out a wide range of eateries, quirky retail stores and relaxing cafes, with something for every budget and taste.

Visiting Yamba

Named as the best town in Australia by Australian Traveller Magazine, Yamba offers a quiet, laidback environment that is perfect for visitors of all ages. The destination is easy to get to as there are flights from Sydney to Grafton Airport, which is located right in Yamba. Alternately, driving along the coastline from Sydney to Yamba makes for the scenic drive of a lifetime.

Very clean, spacious, well-ventilated, and comfortable house with a lovely big back garden for our two golden retrievers.

We felt relaxed the minute we arrived until the minute we reluctantly left. Thanks for the use of the SUP's as it became an early morning ritual of a walk to Pippi's and we all learnt to surf even the little ones! Your place is ideally located and we loved the outdoor shower too. Yamba has our heart and we will be back!
