Proudly Yaegl Country, Maclean is a river town that serves as a junction: it connects people to the beachside jewels of Red Cliff, Brooms Head and Sandon River, and to the inland valley gems of Ashby, Woodford Island and Lawrence. For spectacular views of the Clarence Valley, head to the Maclean Lookout. Stroll to the viewing platform for The Pinnacle, a unique rock formation surrounded by subtropical rainforest, and an important Aboriginal cultural heritage site. Relax with a fishing rod at many superb fishing spots along the river, or buy freshly caught seafood, including local prawns, from various locations in the town. McLachlan Park – on the northeast flank of the town, is a great spot for pulling up on your boat: the pontoon and undercover deck provide shelter and barbecue amenities for all. Step back in time and discover Maclean’s historic buildings or wander through the quaint local shops and art galleries. Maclean is Australia’s Scottish town, where you can’t help but notice hundreds of tartan-painted power poles. There are also Scottish souvenir shops, amazing cafés and galleries. And truth be told, on a clear, still winter’s morning, when river mist cloaks the town in a soft shroud, the Loch Ness monster could pop up next to the pelicans and upriver dolphins, and you wouldn’t be too surprised. Maclean is a connector: part river village, part coastal town. Close enough to the Pacific to feel the salt on the sea breeze, country enough that your groceries will be carried out to your car if you require.
