Located before Grafton, is a small little town with a population of approximately 5000 named Yamba. The peaceful little town is made up of a marina, a local sporting club for barefoot bowls, a main street with delightful little boutiques and cafes and stunning beaches surrounding the heart of what is a town sure to become a family destination for the Australian summer holiday.
In Northern NSW, this unheard of town is making a name for itself through word-of-mouth from outstanding holidays.
Accommodation for starters can be done through 'The Sands', a luxurious complex with two pools, one spa, two tennis courts and plenty of BBQ areas for a true Aussie holiday. 'The Sands' can be found along Pacific Parade, with opposite the accommodation Yamba's 'Pippi Beach'. It is a small price to pay to wake up away from a busy city with the beach 1 km from your complex. 'Pippi Beach' is also well known for it's dolphins earning the name 'Dolphin Point' and it's lookout situated along the beach, about a ten minute walk from 'The Sands'.
There are plenty of things to do other than the beach though in Yamba. At times it will feel like a sleepy town, however the local main street has hip cafes, local boutiques such as TotaLook Clothing where, for the ladies, you can pick up a desirable new outfit. Or for all your local needs, there is a shopping centre at the entrance of the town with Woolworths, a warehouse book store, fruit markets and toy stores for the little ones.
If the beach is however your main objective, head to a favourite local spot called Turners Beach. It's important to know that the beaches in Yamba are only patrolled in school holidays so be weary. The beach attracts swimmers, surfers, beach cricketers, dolphins and rock-pool anemones to fulfil every desire when going to the beach.
Turner's Beach caters to all beachgoers - another beautiful summer day with salt spray in the air.
Hello, enjoyed your article, however I must correct you on 'Dolphin Point". It is called Lovers Point. I have holidayed at Yamba, twice a year for 56 years and I have never heard it referred to as anything other than Lovers Point!, cheers James
