Grafton is famous for its jacaranda trees, which were originally planted in the 1870s by a local seed merchant by the name of Volkers, and the town is at its very best when the trees erupt in mauve blossoms in spring. There are 24 parks in Grafton with more than 6,500 trees.
Just east of Grafton, Yuraygir National Park is a sensational strip of coast teeming with wildlife. It also boasts pristine beaches, high dunes, paperbark lagoons, freshwater creeks that spill into the sea and some of the best coastal walking tracks in the State. Nearby, Yamba, Maclean and Iluka are well worth a visit.
