Yamba and Iluka are so close yet so far. Both are at the mouth of the Clarence River, with Yamba on the southern side and Iluka on the north. To drive between the two towns takes about 40 mins via the Pacific Highway at Harwood. If you own a boat it is only a few minutes across the wide estuary.
A few Yamba landmarks are visible from this lookout in Iluka including the lighthouse, reservoir and the Norfolk Pine Trees.
