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.

Byron Bay wants Byron Baes to back off

Faster than speeding reality TV producer, members of the Byron community have swiftly mounted a multi-pronged attack against the proposed ‘influencer’ based Netflix show Byron Baes.

A whole new level of bridal arrangements has dawned with helicopters entering the fray.

Recently photos were taken of a bride who arrived at the Ocean Shores Country Club by air – it seems vintage cars are so par say (see what I did there?)

Locals were notified earlier in the week that a small helicopter would be landing on the grass area between the Country Club and neighbouring houses, staying for a couple of hours and then heading off again.

The noise of the helicopter brought many locals out to watch it land and they were delighted to see a fully gowned bride climb out of the helicopter before stepping into a golf cart.

The timing was perfect as heavy rain started just afterwards. If they had been much later, they may have needed help from one of the neighbour’s rowboats that can be seen in the corner of one of the photos.
