Family in Yamba
Yamba is a bustling holiday resort with a large fishing fleet. It's built around a headland at the mouth of the Clarence River.
Yamba has all the attributes you would expect of a coastal holiday resort town, including great beaches, a marina, and lots of cafes, a broad river and a lighthouse. Better still, according to scientists, Yamba also has one of the best climates you could ever hope to find, with temperate winters and long, warm, summer days.
The fishing in the area is superb, as the local fishing fleet testifies, and anglers have a choice of rock, beach, estuary or deep-sea fishing spots. Boats are available for hire or charter, and houseboats and cruisers are another holiday option. Yamba is especially known for its prawns and oysters. Nearby, Grafton, Iluka and Maclean are well worth a visit.
