Surf at Yamba, NSW Yamba is one of our favourite East Coast hot spots with a variety of beach breaks that offer surf for beginner, intermediate and advanced surfers. It is the perfect place to hone your surf skills after learning the basics.

When taking a break from the surf, Yamba offers festivals and markets that occur all year round to ensure that no time is wasted here. It is situated at the mouth of the Clarence River in Northern NSW and is the biggest river on the east coast of Australia. Yamba has been declared by CSIRO and Stanford University as having the best climate in the world. In 1908 the Yamba Surf Lifesaving Club was formed. People swim in the ocean at Yamba all year round, and in fact the water is often warmer in July than it is in February due to a warm current finding its way down the coast at that time.

Surf at Byron Bay, NSW Byron Bay is the mecca for surfing in Australia. Ideal waves for intermediate to advanced surfers make this place the ultimate stepping-stone for beginners.It’s popular both with the locals and visitors for it’s fantastic nightlife vibe and surf culture.

This place can be addictive. Expect the feeling of never wanting to leave!

For thousands of years the Aboriginals visited Byron bay to trade goods, find marriages and swap stories. It was called “Cawanbah”. In the 1770?s Captain Cook found a safe anchorage and named Cape Byron after his navigator Lord Byron./li> The 1890?s saw the arrival of Dairy Farmers, among other factories. After the factories closed, the surfers arrived and discovered The Pass, Watego’s and Cosy Corner. Longboarding was the craze in the 1960?s.
