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.

Drawings by the Lennox Head community will be etched onto footpath pavers to be installed during the Ross Park upgrade later this year.

The ‘Leave Your Mark in the Park’ paving art project is part of a larger suite of art activities by Ballina Shire Council as part of the Lennox Village Vision project.

On 20 March and 27 March the Lennox Arts Board invited the local community to express what they love about Lennox Head through art making.

The theme ‘What does Lennox Head mean to you?’ saw participants draw water dragons, banksia flowers, waves, sunshine, and lots of friends and ice creams.

Melissa Wright and Kellie O’Brien from the Lennox Arts Board facilitated the production of more than 150 drawings by families, adults and children.

They have selected 70 of the best, which Council will have etched and printed onto clay pavers and installed as part of the footpath for the Ross Park upgrade.

‘The standard was so high! There are just so many amazing, fun, creative people in our community,’ said Ms Wright.
