Harwood Island

Sweet, sweet Harwood Island.

This tiny village on the banks of the Clarence River is perfect daytrippers and boaties alike. Here you will find the working Harwood Sugar Mill in action, an antique store, a general store/post office, a produce store and most notably the Harwood Hotel better known as the Harwood Hilton.

Harwood is easily accessed either by road or by boat. Either kick back have a fantastic meal and a drink on the deck of the "Hilton", laze in the waterfront park or cruise over to the pontoon and throw in a line.

Harwood Island: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Maclean Lookout


Maclean Lookout is just two kilometres from the town centre on a good sealed road. Offering spectacular views of the coast, bushland, cane fields, river, islands and township. There are picnic tables and turn-around at the Lookout summit which coaches and caravans can easily negotiate. The reserve is a popular site for people walking for pleasure and exercise and enjoying the open space and natural features.

The reserve has long been Maclean's Scenic Lookout and largely undisturbed with the exception of the cleared area surrounding the lookout, the area adjacent to the communications tower and the Pinnacle. Maclean Lookout Reserve has a high level of historical value in terms of being the site for the town Scenic Lookout where the community have traditionally enjoyed views of the Clarence River, Lake Wooloweyah and the hinterland.
The view from the Lookout gives a perspective of the flood plain, estuarine and coastal connection.

Maclean Tartan Power Poles


The iconic Maclean Tartan Power Poles were instigated by the Maclean Scottish Town Association in the year 2000 to coincide with the arrival of the Olympic Torch which was to be conveyed through the township of Maclean. The designs attracted so much favourable comment that there was ongoing considerable public demand for "Family Tartans" to be painted.

Hence the Tartan Power Pole painting was carried on through the main street and extended from there so that today they have an avenue of tartan poles in and around the streets of the main town, extending from the Harwood Bridge to the southern approach to Maclean at Ferry Park. All tartan designs have been painted by resident Maclean artist Linda El Mir.

The Clarence Coast Visitor Information Centre at Ferry Park and the Scottish Shop in Maclean have free maps with locations of the (over 200) Power Poles with Clan Tartans.

Maclean Stone Cottage and Bicentennial Museum


The Maclean Bicentennial Museum is one of very few purpose-built museums in rural Australia. The excellent design enables visitors to easily understand and enjoy the range of special displays.

There are delightful replicas of an early school room and an early hospital ward plus many regularly changing exhibitions. The museum offers a very interesting insight into early Australian lifestyles and the experience extends well beyond the boundaries of the Clarence River.

The Stone Cottage, in the same grounds, was built by Johann George Schaefer after 1879 using sandstone quarried from the site. It became the local museum in 1973 and since the opening of its big brother in 1988 it has been returned to a "living history" replica of a typical home from the turn of the century. It contains many working models.
