Grafton – The Jacaranda City – is blessed with broad avenues, magnificent architecture and spectacular purple flowering jacaranda trees.
A long-standing concern with civic beauty shows itself in the abundance of beautiful trees, parks, statuesque civic buildings and fine residences.
Walking or cycling along their streets gives visitors the opportunity to absorb and ‘feel’ Grafton’s heritage and history in an appropriately quiet and reflective manner.
Grafton's famous Bendy Bridge, built in 1915, has a walk way which is a wonderful way to experience the mighty Clarence River, especially at sun down.
Grafton was the early centre of development in the Clarence Valley being gazetted as a municipality in 1859 and was declared a city in 1885.
Many buildings have been classified by the National Trust including the notorious Grafton Gaol and the Christ Church Cathedral.
