Welcome to the Clarence Valley GenWeb Project (CVGenWeb); a genealogical hub for those researching ancestral ties in the Clarence Valley. The Clarence Valley is a local government area formed in February 2004 by the amalgamation of Grafton City, Maclean Shire, and parts of Copmanhurst, Pristine Waters and the Richmond Valley. The area includes the coastal plain and lower valleys of the Clarence and Nymbodia Rivers. The largest town and council seat is Grafton. Other towns in the region include Maclean, Yamba, Illuka, Junction Hill, Ulmarra and Coutts Crossing.
The Clarence River originates on the watershed that marks the Queensland border. After flowing south and northeast for 394km it then empties into the Pacific Ocean at Yamba. On its journey it passes through the towns of Grafton, Ulmarra, Cowper/Brushgrove, Maclean and Harwood. Its chief tributaries are the Mann River, Nymboida River, and Orara River. The river features many large river islands such as Woodford, Chatsworth, and Harwood Islands; and supports a large prawn trawling and fishing industry.
