Plenty of holiday fun for locals and tourists

There was no shortage of special family events in the Lower Clarence over the Christmas / New Year holiday period, beginning with the Lawrence Rodeo in Maclean. Then followed the Brooms Head Family Fun Day; Yamba Rotary Twilight Markets; MacMarket Day at Maclean; Iluka Pignic Races and Yamba Bowlo Waterslide Fun Day. See inside this edition for a full pictorial wrap-up these events.
