When you are not down by the water, you can wander through Yuraygir National Park or Bundjalung National Park. The Story House Museum is a must-see, but if there is one thing to have on your list, it should be taking the ferry over to Iluka.
Yamba is quite far from Sydney, but well worth the adventure. When you leave from this city, you will find yourself traveling to the north for approximately seven hours and twenty minutes. If you are in Brisbane, your journey will be much shorter at three hours and twenty minutes.
If you are interested in having as little driving time as possible, you can always fly into Grafton and then make the one-hour drive to Yamba.
There are many luxury resorts in Yamba, as well as hostels and farm stays. However, it is the camping grounds that are always the most popular option when it comes to accommodations.
