About Yamba

Yamba in the Clarence Valley enjoys all the enticing qualities of a coastal holiday resort town, including great beaches, a marina, charming cafes and delicious restaurants, a broad river and a lighthouse. With mild winters and long summers, Yamba is a perfect destination year-round.

At the mouth of the beautiful Clarence River, Yamba attracts anglers with its beach, estuary and rock fishing. You can explore the river with Yamba Kayak and Adventure Tours. Deep sea fishing is also popular. Reel Time Charters offer fishing expeditions in the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Yamba Main Beach

The local fishing fleet testifies to abundant fish and prawns, and you can savour locally caught seafood, including famous Yamba prawns, in the town. Fresh local produce is also used at the many cafes and restaurants and sold at the bustling Yamba Farmers Market, a weekly event. You can even take a tour and taste experience at Nicholson Fine Foods, a purveyor of gourmet foods.

You’ll find plenty of accommodation options, from luxury retreats and farm stays to holiday parks and an award-winning youth hostel. South of Yamba is the world-famous surf break at Angourie Beach and Yuraygir National Park, the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline in NSW.
