Travel Guide
Yamba which includes a river or creek

This coastal fishing town has kilometres of gorgeous estuarine foreshore and ocean beaches, ideal for relaxing by the waterside and enjoying beautiful views.

Yamba is a pretty resort town situated on the scenic headlands where the Clarence River meets the ocean. Experience Yamba’s pristine ocean and freshwater systems with days at the beach, boat trips, kayak tours and hiking trips. Relax in Yamba’s traditional pubs, try delicious fresh seafood or play golf on the local course.

Stroll around the town’s pretty marina and watch fishing boats navigating around the headlands. This area is famous for its fishing. Choose from rock, estuary, beach and deep-sea fishing spots. Alternatively, let someone else do the work and visit Yamba’s excellent restaurants and fishmongers to try the region’s seafood. Yamba has a reputation for succulent prawns and oysters. The Yamba Farmers Market, the Yamba Twilight Street Markets and the Simply Handmade Markets also showcase Yamba’s fine produce.

Learn about Yamba’s intriguing history at the Yamba Museum or the Lawrence Museum and Historical Society. Walk in the footsteps of European explorer Matthew Flinders on a historical guided walk through Yamba.

Visit Yamba’s beautiful beaches. Try Brooms Head Main Beach for Coffs Coast views or Turners Beach and Angourie Beach for lifeguard-patrolled swimming. Visit Pippi Beach to surf the breaks that curl off Lovers Point Rock Wall, which is also a great vantage point for spotting whales in winter. Investigate the historic Yamba Lighthouse, also known as the Clarence River Light, and explore the rock shelf at Yamba Point.

In nearby Yuraygir National Park, go hiking or biking through the forested trails or swim and snorkel offshore. Bungjalung National Park offers pristine eucalypt forests and scenic picnic spots close by.

Yamba is located on the Clarence River estuary in north-eastern New South Wales. Its nearest airport is Grafton Airport, about a 1-hour drive away. Yamba is around 3 hours from Brisbane and 2 hours from the Gold Coast. Choose from a variety of accommodation options in Yamba, from deluxe resort-style lodgings to charming coastal cottages.
