The marina phone lines are not working properly. When you call our number you are told we are NOT CONNECTED.

The problem should be fixed by COB on June 1. In the meantime send us a message by email to or call the mobile 0413 111 555. Bloody Telstra…..the customer service from this once great Australian company is now shocking.

With borders closed and boat movements restricted we have a very full marina right now…HOWEVER we can always find space for travelling boats. Please give us 24 hours notice if you can so we can organize space.  And look at section one of our hardstand…it’s empty this Monday morning…and look how neat it is!. That wont last long!!!!!!


We love the following…..enjoy and pass on…..



With the Queensland border looing like re-opening next month please consider making your hardstand bookings well in advance. We want to help everyone…but it’s not helpful if you call the day before you want to be lifted out!  Also please give us plenty of notice if you would like a marina berth. Demand is heavy right now so please book well in advance.

Hardstand Area 1 is full again this week. So is Hardstand Area 2. If you need space call the marina so we can book you time. Even under grey skies the daytime temps are in the 20’s so it’s ideal working weather.

Spectacular sunsets in this part of the world as we lead up to the shortest day of the year….! Nature puts on her best even in grim times.

Look how tidy the yard is!!! For the first time in weeks we’ve had time to clean up. The next onslaught begins tomorrow!!!

As a marina owner this is not what you want…empty berths. BUT WE LOVE it….the boats are out for the long weekend, fishing, cruising, whale watching…or simply relaxing at anchor. And why not? Look at the colour of the sky…and the water. And when the boats come home.….a good safe anchorage at Yamba Marina.

On this day in 1988 Kay Cottee sailed into Sydney Harbour to become the first woman in world history to sail alone, non-stop and unassisted around the world. Kay spent 189 days at sea and her voyage covered more than 22,000 nautical miles. She was named 1988 Australian of the Year and became an Officer of the Order of Australia amongst a host of world-wide awards and honors. Kay Cottee AO, a great Australian.

What more is there to be said…the first day of winter and Yamba Marina is at the middle of a beautiful rainbow.

Lets hope it is a very good sign for all. Stay safe and happy Australia.
