Spend the morning at the main beach in town, located inside a pretty bay with ocean pool, lifesavers and the iconic Pacific Hotel (very good pub food here) up high on the hill above.
Walk the Streets
Yamba's suburban streets are filled with cute coastal houses and holiday units unchanged in decades.
Clarence River Fishermens Co-op
Stop in and pick up some prawns for lunch from this seafood co-operative, sit outside by the river with giant pelicans watching on if you're lucky.
Drive to the next little town down the road for secluded surfing and swimming, where you can hike to your own little stretch of beach or high around Angourie Point. You'll find natural swimming pools here too just inland from the beach. The perfect spot to play shipwrecked.
