getting here

You will find us about 600 kilometres north of Sydney and just 300 kilometres south of Brisbane. The Pacific Highway is the major highway accessing the Clarence Coast.

To get to Yamba from the north, cross the Harwood Bridge and take the first turn left, then right, and travel 14 kilometres along the Clarence River through cane fields past Palmer's Island. If travelling from the south, go past Ferry Park Visitor Information  Centre, continue until Yamba exit to the left, at the T intersection turn right, continue as above.

Or, to get map directions, simply add your location to the google maps below. We have added Grafton as an example to show you how it works!

by road

Grafton is the hub of a major road transport network where the Pacific Highway meets the Gwydir Highway (going west) and the Summerland Way (going north).

Recent and on-going upgrades to the Pacific Highway have made road access from Brisbane and Sydney (and everything in between) a breeze.

The Gwydir Highway provides access from the Glenn Innes and the New England area and the Summerland Way is an easy, hinterland alternative from Brisbane in the north and Coffs Harbour in the south.

by air

Regional Express (REX), Australia's largest independent airline, operates a total of 40 flights each week on a combined route to both Grafton and Taree from Sydney.

The Clarence Valley Regional Airport, just south of Grafton, has been upgraded to provide optimum service to increasing numbers of business and holiday travellers.
