Often referred as the Scottish town, Maclean is an historical town running alongside the Clarence River.  

Maclean holds an annual Maclean Highland Gathering festival where you can savour delicious locally roasted coffee and fresh local produce in charming cafes. The main street of Maclean features hundreds of tartan-painted power poles and runs along the beautiful river.  The charming town centre has lovely boutiques and cafes and restaurants serving fresh local produce and local products.

For spectacular views of the Clarence Valley, the Maclean lookout is two kilometers from the town centre. Stroll from the lookout to the Pinnacle, a fascinating balancing rock formation surrounded by an area of subtropical rain forest and an important Aboriginal cultural heritage site.
