Mother Nature outdoes itself
Perched at the mouth of Clarence River, Yamba is gorgeous to look at. Fishing and tourism have always been the strong points for the town's economy. Based in New South Wales, Australia, Yamba is every nature lover's dream come true and is gaining serious popularity thanks to its quasi-bohemian lifestyle.
Kick-start the trip by heading over to the northern tip of Pippi beach. Do catch a glimpse of 'Lovers Point Rock Wall'. Between May and October, one will view plenty of whales passing by. Tourists will also get to witness dolphins for there are numerous of them all around Yamba and can be observed swimming, surfing and fishing quite near to shore.
Do make it a point to visit the Bundjalung National Park. Running for 25km along the coast north of the Clarence River to South Evans Head, this national park remains unexplored overall. Do head over to the Yuraygir National Park in New South Wales. Spanning 65 km (40 miles) of coastline, it is the biggest coastal park in New South Wales. Beach-a-holics will be delighted to note that are around 48 beaches, including the immensely popular 800-metre (2,600 ft) - long Shelley Beach.
Drop by at the Angourie Blue Pool. Originally, it was a rock quarry but an underground spring was disturbed and filled it with fresh water. Today, it is a famous swimming hole. If you wish for a chance to admire the Clarence river in full depth, take the scenic river cruises that also include historical commentary. Moreover, the Clarence River Ferries offer an everyday commuter service between Yamba and Iluka every couple of hours.
Do head over to the Yamba Lighthouse. This 18 metre tall lighthouse is perched on top of the Pilot Hill, the tallest hill in Yamba with 365 degree views and showcases Iluka to the north, Angourie and Clarence Peak to the south, the Clarence River and its numerous islands to the west and of course the Pacific Ocean to the east. Take some time out to visit the Yamba Museum. Some of the items that are on display are: models of steam and sailing ships, vintage fishing rods and reels, a collection of watercolour fish paintings and a plethora of photographs.
When it comes to shopping, explore the Yamba River Markets. Held by the Clarence River on the fourth Sunday of the month, it sells locally produced food and craft. As for cuisine, do indulge in the local fare served in restaurants dotted around the town.
