History of Yamba The traditional custodians of Yamba are believed to be the Yaegl and Bundjalung people who used to live in the coastal areas. The ancestors of the present-day Yaegl people lived around the Clarence River’s mouth. Some believe that Yamba was derived from the local Aboriginal word for ‘headland’ while others say it came from an Aboriginal word Yumbah which means a rough edible shellfish. In 1861, the townsite was surveyed, and in 1862, the breakwater Clarence River Heads Post Office was established. The town was earlier named Shoal Bay in 1885 but later renamed Yamba.
