Yamba - Tourist Mode

Switching back into tourist mode was easy, just took a couple of days camped at Ballina. Mind you the wet weather clearing certainly helped.

Decided to check out Yamba. Some backtracking south required. Last time in and around Northern Rivers Yamba was not on the agenda so that's a good enough reason. Shortly after arriving found the place familiar but if I've been here before must have been sometime ago. Or maybe these coastal tourist towns are very similar? Anyway its a nice spot to park up for a bit.

Yamba is at the mouth of the Clarence River on the south bank and a popular holiday spot. Across the river, on the north bank, you can see Iluka another really nice spot. Both give you access to the river and the ocean. Both offer good walking and cycling tracks and most what you may need by way of provisions. Yamba is larger and has more of a retail appeal for the ladies whilst Iluka's has its Nature Reserve and Bundjalung National Park. Both have excellent beaches.
