Byron Bay and the Northern Rivers NSW official Accommodation and Visitor Guides

Welcome to the Clarence Valley

Take a step into nature’s wonderland and enjoy coastal treasures, lush hinterland and the river life of the Clarence region, just 1.5 hours south of Byron Bay.

The popular resort town of Yamba, known for its laidback beach lifestyle, makes a great holiday for young and old. Try out your board at Angourie’s surfing reserve, historical walks, boutique shopping and local events.

The Clarence is a food lover’s paradise; local produce features strongly in many restaurants and cafés. The Clarence River, running through the heart of the region, is ideal for sailing and cruising with broad deep expanses of water and 100 chartered islands to explore from Yamba at the mouth of the river to Grafton in the country. Excellent facilities line this beautiful river which was once the main trading route for timber getters and sugar cane farmers.

Superb National Parks protect the longest undeveloped coastline in NSW with endless stretches of golden beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing, snorkelling and fishing.

Explore the Solitary Islands Marine Park, accessed from Sandon and Wooli with 10,000 hectares of coral reef and an amazing diversity of marine life.
