Halfway Creek is a district on the southeastern fringe of the Clarence Valley. It is about 35 kilometres south of Grafton and 25 kilometres 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. Brown’s Knob sits 329 metres high and is a major feature of the coastal range. Glenugie Peak is an extinct volcano and basalt from its slopes was used in the construction of the rail bed of the main north rail line to Brisbane over 80 years ago.
