Travel Directions

Yamba is located at the mouth of the magnificent Clarence River on the Far North Coast of NSW. It's about 700 kilometres north of Sydney and 300 kilometres south of Brisbane. Turn off the Pacific Highway at the Maclean Yamba exit, follow Yamba Road into Yamba and turn right at the second roundabout, head down Angourie Road for 1.6 km and you will find us on the right hand side.

Things To Do

DINING OUT

There are just so many dining options available in Yamba and way too many to list individually ! From Beach Kiosks to trendy Cafes to Fine Dining. It's best if you explore them all for yourself. For a town of only around 7000 people, we certainly do know how to do great food with a nice relaxed atmosphere.

BEACHES

The Main Beach, below Flinders Park and the Pacific Hotel, is patrolled during summer season. This is where the Rock Pool is located. The Main beach Kiosk is also a great place to enjoy an espresso and a fabulous meal overlooking the beach. Turners Beach is found between the break wall and the lighthouse (patrolled in summer). Whiting Beach, a still water river beach, just inland of the break wall, is ideal for children even when seas are high elsewhere. Convent Beach, between main beach and Lovers Point is also calm in most conditions. Pippi Beach runs from Lovers Point to flat rock and further south to Angourie. It is a very good walk for the fitness fanatics. Small sections are patrolled in summer (flags).

YAMBA LIGHTHOUSE

The lighthouse sits atop the highest hill in Yamba. The view from here is expansive and takes in Iluka to the north, Angourie and Clarence Peak to the south, the Clarence River and its many Islands to the west and of course the Pacific Ocean to the east. The sunrises and sunsets from this vantage point are simply stunning. Most evenings, at dusk, you can see the deep-sea fishing fleet heading out of the mouth of the River.

LOVERS POINT ROCK WALK

At the northern tip of Pippi beach lies Lovers Point. The best starting point is near the Breakers Units. From here it is only a short walk down onto the beach. If you head north along the beach it will lead you to the point, where you can easily climb up to the top of the grassy knoll and eventually around to the rock shelf.

The views extend around approximately 240 degrees and are magnificent. Often, in the correct season, Whales can be seen passing by. Dolphins are plentiful all around Yamba and can be observed swimming, surfing and fishing quite close to shore. Fishermen (and Women) have found the rock shelf to be a fantastic fishing spot. Please be sure to take care at all times, especially if seas are high. You can continue on around the point to convent beach, which is a lovely, quiet, protected beach. From this beach it is only a short walk up the hill and back along the road to the Apartment.

PICNIC FACILITIES AROUND YAMBA

Picnic facilities can be found at Flinders Park (overlooking Main Beach) Agar Park (overlooking Lovers Point) Dolphin Park (Pippi Beach at 4WD track) at Whiting Beach and at the old rock pool below the lighthouse. Another great picnic area with free BBQs is at the Witonga Rd Boat ramp.

AROUND AND ABOUT ANGOURIE

ANGOURIE

Immediately south of Yamba along Angourie Road, lies Angourie Point and Township. You may wish to drive or ride (5km) the bike track out to the point (hire bikes are available at Yamba squash and Cycles). The Village is quaint and hosts a fantastic take away place called 'slow food' . Its well worth a trip out here for the burgers and other tasty treats. The Point is famous, worldwide, as one of Australias very best surfing spots.

Angourie is also famous for its Blue Pool, which was originally a rock quarry. During quarry works, an underground spring was disturbed and the quarry filled with fresh water. It is a great swimming spot, lying just metres from the ocean in a beautiful bush setting. After viewing the pools it is also possible to walk over the rocks to Angourie Point. You can then head up the well-marked sand track to the lookout. Once this section is completed it is an easy walk (downhill!) along the road, back to the Blue Pools parking area.

Dont miss Spookys beach while you are looking around, as it is one of the most beautiful and most scenic beaches in the area. Green Point, just one km north of Angourie is also worth a look. Beachcombers would do well to keep their eyes peeled at all of these locations as some fantastic shells have been found in the past.

YURAYGIR NATIONAL PARK

Just south of the Angourie Township, is certainly one of the finest coastal walks in Australia. The track meanders along the coastline and leads to lookouts, Shelley beach and caves and ultimately to Lake Arragan. Many people walk the track daily. Shelley Beach and return should take approximately two to three hours at a steady pace. But give yourself more time as you may wish to spend the day at gorgeous and secluded Shelley Beach. The caves at the end of Shelley beach are also worth a look.

PICNIC FACILITIES AROUND ANGOURIE

Picnic facilities can be found at Green Point, Spooky Beach, the Blue Pools, Angourie Point, Mara Creek and Lake Wooloweyah. The Lake is very pretty at sunset and is a great place for fabulous photo opportunities (see photo page).
