Australia Day Flag raising ceremony
Every year, Australia Day is celebrated in Yamba with a flag raising ceremony using the heritage listed Signal Staff. The Signal Staff was originally located on top of Pilot Hill in the 1860s and was critical in warning vessels of navigation conditions for entering or leaving the Clarence River estuary. After the signal station became obsolete the signal staff was dismantled and relocated to Story Park opposite the Yamba Museum in 1976. The signals themselves are on display in the Yamba Museum.
All are invited to the flag-raising ceremony which starts at 9am. It will begin with a welcome to country by a Yaegl elder and will be followed by a free barbecue for all. The museum will also be open, showcasing several revamped displays, a refurbished model train exhibit, new Kids Deck area and the current special Surf Cult exhibition in the Old Kirk
