Yamba

Yamba boasts spectacular beaches, fabulous seafood, rolling surf, perfect climate and amazing seaside accommodation. Wake up to the sound of the ocean right at your door, breakfast at a funky cafe and head off for a day of cruising and discovery. Mathew Flinders first came to Yamba in 1799 and a maritime station was established in 1854 that remains to this day. To explore the history of the town further, take a stroll along the Yamba Historical Walk finishing up at the local museum. Along the way you'll pass Pilot Hill and the lighthouse precinct which offer visitors beautiful panoramic ocean views. Check out the marina, hire a boat, take a relaxing river cruise, or order up a latte. And of course you can't go home without tasting the famous Yamba prawns. If you're in need of a little self indulgence, pamper yourself from head to toe at a luxurious day spa or splurge with a bout of shopping in Yamba's main street and shopping centre. Explore art galleries and craft shops, check out the latest film at the local cinema or follow the locals to any of Yamba's five stunning beaches. Swim in the local ocean pool or take in a surfing lesson with one of the local surf schools. Yamba is famous for its fishing. Yamba is the home port to one of the largest commercial fishing fleets in the state. Watching the fleet go out of the heads in the early evening and returning at dawn with their catch is a sight not to be missed. Cast a line in at one of the many beaches or estuaries, hire a boat, or take the easy way out and let the local chefs do the hard work for you. There are lots of award-winning restaurants to choose from or soak up the ambience at a gourmet cafe. Yamba is home to some world class accommodation, from award winning luxury resorts and holiday apartments, to family holiday parks, motels and backpacker accommodation.

Family Fun Day


Fun for young and all will be had at Rotary Club of Yamba's Annual Family Fun Day. Mr Steve Machel has become the resident expert Sandologist for the Family Fun Day sand modelling competition and offers contestants hints and tips before this popular event at Yamba's Main Beach. Come down to Main Beach early and watch his design take shape using nothing more than sand, water, bucket, a butter knife and brush.

Teams of four then compete against each other in making their own sand modelling design. Cars, sea creatures, mythical animals, space creatures and the traditional sandcastles are seen each year. They have a junior section (under seven year olds) and a senior section (over seven) with trophies for the winning teams. Only natural items found on the beach can be used in the design and the use of normal beach bucket and spade is allowed to carry water and sand. No house hold garden equipment will be allowed.

There is a barbecue sausage sizzle and steak burgers held by Rotary and the beach kiosk is always open. Entry fee is per team with all money going to Yamba Rotary for use on local projects.
