The Lowdown

Grafton, Yamba, Maclean, Iluka, Wooli 
What? Where? When? How?

Oh, hey there ...

G’Day! Here in the Clarence Valley we appreciate the finer things in life: crisp mornings on the river; moments of solitude in the surf; long-lost adventures up dirt roads and meeting friends for a coffee and a catch-up.

Quite simply, you can breathe a little easier in the Clarence. That’s what this big river country is about.

When you stroll the streets of our towns, Grafton, Yamba, Maclean, Iluka and Wooli, be prepared to meander and take your time. Clarence Valley people love a chat, and these stories hold us together like the mighty Clarence River that weaves its way through the landscape.

From the Bundjalung, Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl traditional owners, to the generations of families on the land, to the café owners who’ve swapped the city for the good life, to the kids and their beloved chooks – there’s always room for another story.

The Clarence Valley can be a chapter in the story of your life, or it can be the whole book. 

Either way, we’re delighted you’re here.
