Stairs stairs stairs. Stayed in 3 bedroom penthouse and needed to climb 4 flights to get to room. No lifts. It was ok for our young family but would be impossible for older groups. Great views of puppies beach. Could see dolphins whales. Pippie beach which is opposite was Unpatrolled and full of dogs. Accomodation was away from Main Street which was good. Yamba shops have strange opening hours if you are unaware.
