About Maclean

Maclean calls itself 'the Scottish Town in Australia'. Many of its street signs are written in Gaelic as well as English. Australia's oldest free presbyterian church still holds services for the descendants of the early settlers, and there is a large Scottish cairn constructed from rocks from around Australia and Scotland in the Herb Stanford Memorial Park, overlooking the river in Taloumbi Street. Maclean is also well known for its river fishing and its easy access to coastal national parks and holiday resorts.

Nearby, Grafton, Yamba and Iluka are well worth a visit.
