The town has summer temperatures ranging from 19 to 30 degrees and winter temperatures ranging from 10 to 20 degrees.
This warm yet comfortable temperature range has resulted in Yamba being named as having the best climate in the world by the CSIRO and Stanford University.
This enviable ‘world’s best’ title is only shared with two other places - San Diego in California and Bunbury in Western Australia.
The good news is that Yamba residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful coastal and inland areas where they can take advantage of these ideal temperatures.
For instance, Yamba’s Main Beach is renowned for its picturesque ocean swimming pool and is also home to one of NSW’s oldest surf lifesaving clubs. A little to the south of Yamba, Angourie is the location of NSW’s first dedicated surf reserve.
Short road trips will also take you to nearby historic villages and great fishing spots.
About Uniting Yamba
The Uniting Yamba retirement village is located just a four minute walk from the town’s boat harbour and marina, where you’ll be able to hire boats, go fishing, enjoy some fish and chips or have a bite at the marina cafe.
Uniting is about to begin construction of a range of one, two and three-bedroom pet-friendly villas and apartments at its Yamba village. Most apartments will look out to the marina on Yamba Rd, while the villas will be located in a quiet area in the village proper on Freeburn Rd.
Importantly, these new dwellings will be specifically built to allow their occupants to live independently and be able to enjoy the best that Yamba has to offer.
All of the homes will be light and airy, with floor-to-ceiling height windows to ensure that living areas are bathed in natural light.
At the same time, the homes will be orientated so that residents can benefit from Yamba’s famous cooling afternoon breezes.
The homes will include all the latest modern comforts and high-quality fittings and finishes, including stone kitchen benchtops and energy and water efficient appliances.
They have also been designed to maximise safety and ageing-in-place, through level flooring, generous corridor widths, zero-threshold showers and the installation of bathroom towel racks which double as a strong grab rail.
Tropical resort-like feel
Uniting’s overall design vision at Yamba is to create resort-type retirement living which is in harmony with its tropical location.
This will be achieved through the use of light-coloured building materials and paint, along with landscaping with warm weather plants such as palms, frangipanis and lemon-scented myrtles.
The on-site amenities at Uniting Yamba include the clubroom with library and BBQ area, which host resident activities such as trivia nights.
Uniting Yamba is only a five-minute drive to the town centre where residents can access grocery shopping, pharmacies and GP services.
The village is just 2km from the local Bowling Sports and Leisure Centre and Yamba Golf and Country Club, while the Maclean District Hospital is only 20 minutes’ away.
Independent living benefits
Importantly, the new dwellings will be designed as a springboard for good times and fun, for retirees who want to enjoy the best years of their lives.
This is because the new dwellings at Uniting Yamba are specifically designed for independent living, which means that you can come and go from your home as you please and live your life exactly as you wish.
Importantly, the Uniting team will take care of general maintenance of your home and the village grounds. You’ll also have the benefit of living among a supportive and friendly retirement community, which means you can choose to enjoy communal activities and trips.
By the same token, if the need arises, occupants of the new homes at Uniting Yamba will be able to call on additional home and community care services, including personal care, transport and meal preparation in your own home.
In addition, the Uniting Caroona Yamba aged care facility is located beside the retirement village and offers around-the-clock care.
Uniting retirement living residents are eligible for a 10 per cent discount on the refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) when moving into a Uniting aged care home.
