Yamba is a town in northern New South Wales, at the mouth of the Clarence River. The town economy is strongly based on fishing and tourism, but has a diverse range of influences, due to the 'Sea Change' phenomena and the large amount of baby boomers who are starting to retire to the warmer climates.
The Port of Yamba is one of two regional ports in New South Wales. The nearest airport is Grafton Airport and there is a private airstrip on Palmers Island, just outside Yamba. Alternatively Yamba is serviced by Lismore Airport in Lismore with several daily flights to Sydney.
