The Clarence River


The Clarence River, being the largest river on the eastern seaboard, lends itself to extraordinary estuary fishing. It is a living link between the rugged highlands of the upper Clarence and the golden beaches that fringe the sparkling Pacific. It winds through deep ravines and broad plains, ancient forests, lush farmland, sleepy villages and 100 chartered islands. Over 400 kilometres from source to sea, the Clarence is one of Australia's largest waterways. It was once the region's main trade route and several ferries still link the River's islands and rural villages.

The mighty Clarence River is an attraction not to miss whilst holidaying in the Clarence Valley.

River descriptions and maps of boating routes with GPS coordinates, campsite options, points of interest and towns with amenities are to be found in The Sailing and Cruising Guide, which can be picked up from the Visitors Centres in Grafton and Maclean.
