Brief Visit

We had a quick trip to Yamba for the wedding of a good friend. We came from Toowoomba via Brisbane and it was a relatively quick trip down the Brisbane to Sydney highway. Scenery not overly stunning on the way especially the northern part and the southern sections near Ballina and Byron Bay, well it was dark by the time we were around there.

My opinion of this small town in Northern NSW is that it would be a great place for a beach holiday with a family. Enough shopping to keep you amused if the weather chased you off the beach but not overly commercialised, yet. According to my other half there is also lots of good fishing spots in the area and we did see lots of boats around.
