Beaches best part of Clarence Valley

NOTHING beats growing up with the Clarence Coast at your doorstep.

Fourteen-year-old friends, Bianca Wakefield of Palmers Island and Rochelle Oxley, of Yamba, both agree that what they love most about Valley life is the beach.

“I go surfing if it's good but mainly we just go swimming and hang out with friends,” Bianca said.

But with the large swell rolling in yesterday, the girls traded in their beach time for an afternoon snack in Yamba.

Bianca and Rochelle go to Maclean High School, and like most teenagers, they lead busy lives.

Rochelle dances at the Clarence River youth ballet academy in Maclean.

Bianca used to go there, but she's now taken up hip-hop, which she loves.

“I also do swimming squad, but that's finished for the year and I go to the gym three times a week,” Bianca said.

They're both looking forward to the Easter holidays coming up.
