cvi   Welcome to the Clarence Valley and all it has to offer. Whether you’re here on holidays or lucky enough to be a local, Holidays in the Clarence Valley is your essential events guide throughout the school holiday period. Packed with ideas to fill in those idle hours, lazy days and cool Autumn nights Holidays in the Clarence Valley has it all. Whilst you’re here take in some of the many Plunge festival events that are on right across the valley. With more than 150 cultural and artistic performances, displays and workshops on there is definitely something for everyone. If art and culture is not your style why not hire a boat at one of many picture post card towns for a perfect day on the water; take a self-guided tour to a remote corner of the Clarence; spend some time shopping away from the madding crowd or simply relax and refresh at any one of dozens of charming cafés, restaurants or country pubs dotted throughout the valley. Lose yourself among the rugged headlands and sheltered bays of our glorious coastline or go bush and discover the beauty that surrounds us in the world heritage national parks and rainforests of the hinterland. Take time out to discover what life is really like in our sleepy towns and villages. Sip lattes at award winning galleries or explore one of the 100 river islands on the Clarence. The Clarence River is a living link between the rugged highlands of the upper Clarence and the golden beaches that fringe the sparkling Pacific. It winds through deep ravines and broad plains, ancient forests, lush farmland, and sleepy villages. Over 400kms from source to sea, the Clarence is one of Australia’s largest waterways. Whatever your style, whatever your mood, there’s no better time to be visiting and holidaying in the Clarence Valley than Autumn.
