Clarence Valley Council Full Time Permanent 26/03/2021

Northern Rivers – Clarence Lifestyle

The Clarence Valley is a place of outstanding natural beauty and diversity, from lush rainforests to unspoilt beaches and fertile river plains. The Clarence River stretches more than 380km and is the Valley’s living link connecting the rural localities and rugged mountain ranges in the west to Grafton, onward to the hinterland villages, historic river towns of Ulmarra and Maclean and the coastal centres of Yamba and Iluka. Just three hours by road from Brisbane, with a population of 52,000 residents (and growing), a perfect climate, a bounty of rural, hinterland, coastal and city lifestyle and business options, the Clarence is fast becoming the relocation destination of choice.
