Diocese of Grafton

The Diocese of Grafton, (28 parishes) sometimes called the "Diocese of the Northern Rivers", extends for about 500 kms along the north coast of New South Wales from Port Macquarie in the south to Tweed Heads in the north and inland to the Great Dividing Range.

The coastal towns are renowned for their beauty, fabulous beaches, and recreational and professional fishing. It is a fertile area devoted to cattle raising, dairying, time industries, and growing bananas, avocados, macadamia nuts, and sugar cane. Tourism is also a fundamental part of the economy for these areas. The sub-tropical climate is almost perfect all year round.

Grafton, situated on a sweeping bend in the Clarence River and noted for its many jacaranda trees, is the Cathedral city.
