Grafton is an inland country town. It is situated along the Clarence River in an area popular for it sugar-cane plantations. It is a very pretty town especially during its Jacaranda Festival in October, when the streets are lined with beautiful Mauve flowers from the trees. There is an interesting museum which tells the history of the area, as well as an art gallery to visit. If you want to stay in Grafton then accommodation isn't a problem with numerous motel and pub accommodation available.
Market Square shopping centre is where the local buses depart from, although the buses travelling further afield leave from the Shell service station on the highway. Premier has reasonably priced transport north and south along the coast.
