FISH. EAT. RELAX. SURF. SLEEP. REPEAT. YES, THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH THE PLAN FOR OUR LONG WEEKEND GETAWAY TO YAMBA. LOCATED BESIDE THE MOUTH OF THE CLARENCE RIVER (ABOUT 2.5 HOURS DRIVE FROM THE GOLD COAST), THIS SEASIDE TOWN WITH A SUBLIME BEACH VIBE, CHARM
luxury homes, we played house at The Cove Yamba. Close to everything breathtaking views. Being self-contained we easily made this our home away from home for a few luxurious days by the sea. The mornings started slow. We walked for hours, exploring the Craig on the main street, including yummy sourdough donuts and mugs of latte. With more to explore, we browsed the quaint lifestyle shops and kept walking onwards to the Lighthouse to count dolphins from the hills, there were so many!. Afternoons were lazy. We bought Trivia Pursuit at the local op shop so enjoyed challenging our minds (with wine in hand) all whilst enjoying of patience (mainly for hubby!). footy was on!) so ‘Happy Hour’ led to dinner and the pace was perfect, with locals crowding the pub as the sun disappeared and the music starting rocking. Locals say there is one word for Yamba... "perfect". And we couldn’t agree more.
