AROUND GRAFTON TOWN

When we visited Grafton to see the Jacaranda Trees, we also checked out the town

We tried to find a spot where we could see the iconic double decker bridge and the construction of a new one. Cars on top and trains underneath but it is too narrow to cater for increased traffic and the size of the trucks.
 In town our tour leader discusses the next place to visit. We were in a car convoy and it was difficult trying to follow the leader in town traffic.

 The city centre marked by a clock tower is quite common in country towns. The church was surrounded by purple trees and the swans wore Jacaranda leis.

 I love the old country hotel architecture but it isn't a hotel any more but shops.

After a day of travelling from Brisbane to Grafton and sight seeing, we were ready for a rest and dinner. We found a hotel overlooking the mighty Clarence River.
Tomorrow we travel back north stopping at Yamba for lunch.
