Yamba is the perfect destination for a water-based trip. Just south of Yamba is Angourie Point. This area holds a special place in Australian surfing: not to be messed with if you’re a swimmer or under-experienced surfer, this point is known to be one of the best places for a day in the waves. For those that want to experience the rock shelf of Angourie Point, then get ready for an epic time ahead.
Not a surfer? Spooky Beach to the north or around the corner at Back Beach are the perfect places for swim in the ocean. Maybe head here once you’ve watched the rolling waves for a while; it’s an impressive spot to just sit and observe for an hour or two.
There are plenty of quieter spots to enjoy the water too, such as along the estuary of Yamba. Hop on a tour with Yamba Kayak, which promises epic views and potentially close encounters with the wild dolphins that call this area their home. Or view the water from above at Yamba Lighthouse and marvel at the waves below. Then, head along some of the Yuraygir Coastal Walk: it’s a 65-kilometre stretch full of beautiful, ancient trails and epic scenery.
After a long day at the beach, either spectating the waves or out on the surf, you’ll likely be hungry! Thankfully Yamba has some excellent spots for some great food. Yamba is known for its incredible locally caught seafood, like the Yamba prawns that can be enjoyed at one of the many restaurants around town; some of the freshest that you may have ever tried.
Northern New South Wales is full of incredible coastal destinations, made even more so by the close proximity to the Queensland border. This means you get the best of both worlds while you’re here and can take a trip to the north of the border for an epic day in the Sunshine State.
Perhaps a day on the Gold Coast, just a two-hour drive from Yamba, will be a great trip in your Thrifty rental. The Gold Coast is renowned for its epic beaches, like Main Beach, Nobby Beach, or Broadbeach to name a few. You’ll have a great time exploring the local area before enjoying dinner in Surfers Paradise, which is an endless playground of fun.
Yamba has plenty of adventures ahead. Whether you want to spend your days on the surf (or at least watching it), or taking a trip north to Queensland, you’ll have plenty of fun days in your Thrifty rental. We can’t wait to welcome you here soon, at Yamba Maclean Downtown.
