So we arrived in Yamba after a lovely few days in Ballina. Yamba was a very small town, about the size of a village actually, with a surfing and relaxing atmosphere. The hostel we stayed at was owned by a large family, who all decided to sell their houses to by the land and build the hostel from scratch. The hostel was extremely modern, clean, and friendly, and the family who owned the hostel regularly wandered through the kitchen and living area basically lived there too (in the flat above the hostel). There was a family dog too! On the first day we explored the area (we do that a lot) took a few pictures, and got our bearings. On the first evening, there were a few games and activities being held in the common area by the staff (as there isnt much in Yamba at all, everyone had to entertain themselves staying at the hostel), so we decided to join in. We met a few nice young 'schoolies' who seemed a lot more mature than the ones you see getting drunk on the news, and watched tv. The second day, we headed to the beach for a bit of sunbathing and wave jumping (the waves were huge!!) and in the eveing we just chilled out in the hostel and watched tv, and chatted to a few of the guys. The next day, we chilled out and watched tv yet again (like i said, not much to do in Yamba!) And in the evening, we stayed up (pulled almost an all-nighter) so that we could watch the Arsenal Chelsea game on Foxsports - the less said about that game, the better! And the next day, we were off to our next destination - Coffs Harbour!!! Yamba was a nice place, but not much to do.
