Just 5 minutes away from Yamba is the small village of Angourie. Famous among the surfing community, Angourie provides some of the best surf breaks on the East Coast of NSW and is surrounded by Yurigir National Park. Angourie is also home to the Blue and Green Pools, which are extremely deep, natural, freshwater swimming holes. The rock shelf separating the pools from the ocean is an interesting area to explore and families often picnic around the picturesque freshwater pools. The village cafes and restaurants are popular with locals and visitors alike.
