Makes you feel good

This is the American boat Patriot damaged last week in the lead up to the America’s Cup. The other countries involved, Italy, the UK and hosts New Zealand, all chipped in to get their rival back on the water. What better way to say thanks than with a “band aid” over the wound made up […]

Look at the sky

The weather could not be any better to work on your boat. The hardstand is busy but we will find you a slot if you need one. Great time of the year to work outdoors and get the boat ready for the coming twelve months.

Tinnies for hire

Don’t forget – if you don’t have a boat don’t worry. You can hire tinnies at Yamba Marina 7 days a week. Call the office on 02 6646 9898 to book one. You’ll have a ball on the Clarence River. Go fishing or just cruisin…..there’s fun to be had.


Welcome to 2021. Be safe and be happy.

Yamba is packed and holiday makers are having a ball. The weather has been kind and people are using their boats both on the Clarence and off-shore. The marina is packed right now. If you are looking for a berth please call before you arrive. We will do our best to help. There are lost […]


The Super Highway

Onsite at the charming Harwood Hotel the new charging station is just a few seconds off the brand new Pacific Motorway.  Just another innovation in the Clarence Valley to bring more […]

Always remember the good times

It has been one hell of a year. But we all must remember why we love Australia. It’s the best place on earth. Enjoy the summer and remember we are here to help at Yamba Marina. We are closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day but open all other days. Come and enjoy the Australian summer. […]

Safety first always

Whenever you visit the fuel dock at Yamba Marina we ask that you observe all the safety rules. Obviously there is NO SMOKING and NO USE OF MOBILE PHONES on the fuel wharf. All fuel delivery will be overseen by a staff member and customers are not to remove the fuel delivery hoses from there […]

Safe at Yamba Marina

Hard to believe but when this picture was taken  it was blowing at over 50 kilometres an hour in Yamba. All the boats are snug in their berths and protected from the very strong south-easter.  The wind will blow harder today and tomorrow so its a good day to be tied-up.

Perfect holiday weather

Holiday season is in full swing on the far north coast of NSW. Marina bookings are at an all-time high with Australians holidaying at home after the long hard fight against Covid 19. The Clarence River is looking pristine and there are plenty of fish about. The famous Yamba Prawn is in good supply. Remember […]
