grafton and clarence country

Rugged mountains, broad rivers, magnificent National Parks and historic villages are some of the delights in store as you explore Clarence country, the heartland of the Northern Rivers.

Among the rugged mountains, green valleys and wild bushland, stockmen still muster on horseback to the sound of cracking stock whips and barking cattle dogs.

You can explore the quaint country villages and towns, take scenic drives through the countryside and discover beautiful natural wonders such as national parks and the Clarence River Gorge or get out on the Clarence River or one of its many tributaries.

The commercial hub of the Clarence Valley is the beautiful city of Grafton situated on the banks of the Clarence River. Grafton has historic architecture, excellent accommodation, shopping, restaurants and a vibrant artistic community.
