Small towns often get a bad rap from their big city cousins who are prone to assuming that just because they are petite in nature they must also be devoid of culture and a decent latte. But what the city folk are starting to recognise are the infinite drawcards and advantages that town living presents: the sense of community, the slower pace of life, affordable housing and more relaxed lifestyle.
Towns, the “official” definition of which seems to hinge on population (a small town has fewer than 10,000 residents) according to the ABS, are also a delightful proposition when it comes to exploration. Spending time in a small town allows residents and visitors alike to tap into a more laid-back way of life, at the same time as they discover new delights such as uncrowded beaches to local-run cafes and restaurants, to breathtaking scenic experiences that most don’t even know about. For all of these reasons (and a lot more), I moved to the Lower Clarence and Yamba over 40 years ago (think I may be a local now). Over this time, like many of you, I have watched Yamba mature into one of the north coast’s favourite small towns.
For those experiencing lockdown during this COVID Season, where restrictions prevent you from going to work in an office building environment, you may have had the realisation that your new ‘working from home’ regime could continue to be done somewhere other than suburbia. This could well be the opportunity you have been waiting for to change your view and step into a sea or tree change. I could think of no better place to work, rest and play, than Yamba.
So whether you’re fortunate enough to call this area your full time home or just from time to time while on holidays, enjoy and appreciate the paradise that is Yamba.
And of course, if you are looking to make a sea/tree change, buy, sell, lease or rent a property, our team is here to help you.
