The Clarence Valley lies between Evans Head in the north and Grafton in the south. As the name suggests, the Clarence River runs through this green and fertile valley, known for surfing, fishing, farming and one of the most temperate climates in the world (the other being San Diego).
The Clarence Valley is home to the World Heritage listed Bundjalung National Park and is bordered in the west by the Washpool National Park, at the Gibraltar Ranges. It is home to many Indigenous Nations, including the; the Bundjalung, Yaegl, Gumbaynggir & Birrigan Gargle.
What is less known about the Clarence Valley is its wealth of organic producers and growers and its rich, grass-roots artistic societies, all stemming from the communities of the small villages. The Clarence celebrates many festivals supporting their arts practices, from the Maclean Highland Gathering to Plunge, the annual Clarence Arts Festival.
