Mountain View: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Clarence Gorge


Located within one and a half hours drive, north-west of Grafton is this rugged gorge where thundering waterfalls and savage rapids intermingle with deep pools and sections of calm water. The scenery is breathtaking and the fishing is excellent. There are three main waterfalls and the Rainbow Falls live up to their name on sunny days.

There are guided 4WD tours available but most visitors enjoy overnight stays at one of the properties that line the gorge. It must be emphasised that the Clarence Gorge is enclosed by private property on both sides. These properties operate as farm stay businesses and can accommodate campers.

Please contact the Clarence River Visitor Information Centre in Grafton to obtain these operators details.

A visit to the gorge cannot be achieved in a few hours without any planning and prior arrangements, but those who make the effort are inevitably inspired by their adventure.

James Morrison has recently returned from highly acclaimed tours of Europe and the USA. In Chicago, at the legendary Green Mill Jazz Club with his Academy Jazz Orchestra, he was reviewed by Howard Reich (Chicago Tribune) who commented: "he's widely admired in the realm of Jazz, particularly for his wizardry on trumpet".

This time he will play in the Grafton Cathedral and be supported by Gospel singer, Evelyn Duprai, at the SOULful 2017 Concert, proudly presented by FM 103.1 Loving Life.
