Clarence River ,Maclean N.S.W.


Maclean is very proud of its Scottish Heritage. Every Easter the clans invade the township for the Annual Highland Gathering and the Scottish tradition is highlighted by the fact that the township has the oldest Free Presbyterian Church in Australia. To portray this connection, a number of stones from both Scotland and Australia have created a large Scottish Cairn overlooking the Clarence River.

Many street signs also carry the Gaelic translation of the name and at least one local hotel advertises that hagis is available for breakfast.

Maclean is also the gateway to Australia's Sugar Country and celebrates this connection in September with the Cane Harvest Festival.

Maclean also hosts the headquarters for a large prawn trawling fleet that works the Clarence River from Ulmarra to the mouth of the river.

Places to visit whilst in Maclean include the Scottish Cairn, the Maclean Lookout, The Pinnacle and the Bicentennial Museum
