Thanks to Telstra….we have no phones.

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 contact@yambamarina.com.au or call the mobile 0413 111 555. Bloody Telstra…..the customer service from this once […]

A full marina…….

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 […]

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.

Winter wonderland…….

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.
