Grafton Clocktower

Crowning moment in honour of the Queen

Emma Pritchard. A much loved and time-honoured tradition which celebrates the beginning of the Jacaranda season, the crowning of the famous Grafton Clocktower was brought forward by several weeks this year at the request of Clarence Valley residents in honour of Queen Elizabeth II ... Shortly before 6am on September 14, the iconic crown was carefully guided into place as a small crowd ... gathered in Prince Street to watch.
