Yamba restaurants

I’m often asked about Yamba, one of our favourite holiday spots over the last 20 years. With a great range of beaches, walks, tennis courts, skate parks and accommodation etc it’s been great for the kids growing up, and they still love it. Plus, it’s now only 90 minutes’ drive from Mullumbimby.

Menno Koopmans 

The Byron Bay Rams second division had a comfortable 4–1 win against Tintenbar to clinch the minor premiership with one game to spare.

Made up of a whole cross- section of the community, with ages ranging from 19 through to 50, the seconds have had a great season, boasting the best defence in the league and winning 14 out of their 17 fixtures so far.

Having struggled with injuries, the boys persevered this season, showing great depth and composure.

The team is now looking forward to the final series.

Lennox Head have to play Goonellabah on Saturday and the Rams will play the winner of that game the following week.

Good luck, Rams.
