Take a drive, walk, paddle or cycle your way around the Clarence Valley
Two Day

Jacaranda time - take two days for exploration

Here’s how to spend 2 amazing days in our big backyard

Day 1 Grafton – Wooli – Grafton 

Spend the morning exploring Grafton’s Jacaranda-lined avenues. Turf Street and See Park are the best places to view the purple trees.

We think Breimba Avenue is also a great street to visit for its towering fig trees.

For lunch, head to the coastal village of Wooli (40 minutes) for fish and chips by the river. You can also buy Wooli oysters direct from the oyster farmer.

Time for a swim - take your pick of the beach, river or both. 

On the road back to Grafton, look out for kangaroos and emus – both regular visitors in the countryside.

Back in Grafton, head to one of the cities hotels for a classic Australian pub dinner.

Day 2 Grafton – Ulmarra – Chatsworth Island

Start the morning with a walk along the Clarence River and visit the Christ Church Cathedral, built in 1842, where you’ll find a white Jacaranda tree. 

Now it’s time to explore some of our unique river villages. Drive across Grafton’s bendy bridge and head north on the highway (15 minutes) to Ulmarra.

Ulmarra’s galleries are a great place to see the best of Clarence Valley’s arts and culture. For lunch, head to the Ulmarra Hotel, on the banks of the Clarence River, where you’ll enjoy river views and water dragons basking in the sun. 

After lunch, head north on the highway, across the Harwood Bridge, and follow the signs to Chatsworth Island. The general store at this picture-perfect village is a great spot to buy local macadamia nuts and enjoy an ice cream by the river.

Don’t forget to get a photo of the ‘thong’ tree too!
