The role of the Clarence River

The Clarence Valley, at the southern end of the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, is a place of astonishing beauty and extraordinary cultural diversity – where teeming marine parks, ancient rainforests and thriving rural communities are nourished by vast winding rivers.

The largest of these rivers is the Clarence, which is a link between the rugged highlands of the upper Clarence and the golden beaches that fringe the Pacific Ocean.

Nearly 60% of the Clarence Valley is undeveloped, with eleven national parks and many state forests to explore. Both Iluka Nature Reserve and Washpool National Park have World Heritage Listed status.
