Halfway Creek, NSW

Halfway Creek is a district on the south eastern fringe of the Clarence Valley. It is about 35 km south of Grafton and 25 km north of Woolgoolga.

A spur of the Great Dividing Range juts towards the coast here, providing diverse topography on the eastern side of the Pacific Highway with some notable high points. Brown’s Knob at 329 metres is a major feature in this coastal range.

Glenugie Peak (Mt. Elaine) can be clearly seen from most points in the district. It is on the eastern fringe of the plain between Halfway Creek and Grafton. It is an extinct volcano and basalt from these slopes was used in the construction of the railbed of the main north rail line to Brisbane some 80-85 years ago. The embankment that carried the tramway to move the crushed basalt to the rail construction site can still be seen.

There is a trailride business for those wanting to get out on horseback and explore the surrounding state forests and countryside.
The southern section of the Yuraygir National Park can be easily accessed just south of Halfway Creek along Barcoongere Way Road.

There are two service stations and tea rooms for anyone wanting to stop for a bite to eat while travelling on the Pacific Highway.

The Halfway Creek area is a haven of horticulture and therefore an excellent spot for those interested in seasonal fruit-picking work. Avocados, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, tugi fruit, apples, macadamias, vegetables, roses and honey are all grown or produced commercially in the area. Roadside stalls and the Shell Service Station sell these fresh products in season.
