We planned on spending an hour or so but ended up staying the whole morning... so much information about the local area... and arranged so you can skim for an overview or delve into the details if you want to. Fabulous!

The history of Yamba is fascinating and the PYHS has researched it well. A permanent display, plus researched facilities and occasional special exhibitions. Well worth a visit!
