Title Clarence - River of Adventure Project
This presentation outlines the role of the three levels of government and the community in creating what is set to become one of the nation's great river experiences. Key aspects of the presentation include:
The Clarence is a large working, wild and free flowing river which extends nearly 400km from the ranges in Queensland to the coastal town of Yamba. The east coast's largest river system covers a total catchment area of 22,660 square kilometres. On its journey the river gracefully meanders its way through the towns of Copmanhurst, Grafton, Ulmarra, and Maclean. Whilst up river its chief tributaries the Nymboida, Mann and Orara Rivers carve their way with purpose through spectacular landscapes.
The 'Clarence, river of adventure' project will provide a series of new and distinctive tourism experiences and infrastructure to maximise the nature/adventure tourism of the Clarence River. Projects include:
With these projects being just the tip of the iceberg, the Clarence is set to become one of the nation's great river experiences.
