Retrace the historical steps of explorer Matthew Flinders on one of two self-guided walking tracks around Yamba. Both walks start at the Yamba Historical museum
The first track, the “Hill Walk” is a medium grade walk of about 3 kilometres which will take you approximately 2 hours to complete. On this walk you will get to see the structure that served as Yamba’s first lighthouse, the Matthew Flinders’ memorial plaque and the Yamba Surf Life Saving Club which is the oldest continuous country surf club in Australia. You can see a full description of the locations you will visit on the Hill Walk here.
The “Flat Walk” is an easier 3 kilometre track that will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. The track will take you out onto the Turner’s beach breakwall, past the Heritage listed police station and through what was historically the main entrance into Yamba. You can see a full description of the locations you will visit on the Flat Walk here.
At the completion of both walks, you will return to the Yamba Historical Museum where you can look around and discover more about Yamba’s history.
