Backpackers love Yamba

THOUGH they are from the same country, it took Jenn Buchan and Matt Brown a trip across the world to find each other.

Backpacking their way around Australia and spending some months working in Sydney, the two Britons have come to Yamba for a bit of relaxation before facing the deep freeze on home turf.

“Out of all the backpackers hostels I’ve stayed in around Australia, the Yamba YHA is the best,” Jenn said.

Matt topped that with ‘It’s the best in the world’.

The pair has walked and surfed the best of the Clarence.

“The Angourie Blue Pools was my favourite spot,” Matt said.

They said Yamba was still relatively unheard of in the backpacker circles, with most travellers opting for Byron Bay.

“It’s off the backpacker trail but it certainly shouldn’t be. It’s got a relaxed holiday feel but also a good community vibe,” Jenn said.
