Towns and Villages


Bonalbo, the heart of the Upper Clarence, established in 1910. This quaint village’s name is interpreted from the Aboriginal word ‘bunawblu’ meaning bloodwood tree which are dotted throughout the region’s lush forests. Bonalbo is also the centre for the surrounding areas for timber, dairying and cattle-grazing industries.

Bonalbo is a lifestyle away from the hustle-and-bustle of larger centres, providing a relaxing atmosphere. The main community needs and services are catered for, along with a variety of recreational facilities to provide the individual or group with a diverse range of activities. From golf, bushwalking, swimming, site seeing, lawn bowls, picnicking, family barbeques with the oval providing large open space for fun activities. It is well worth a visit to Bonalbo to see the Working Dog Statue, located in a beautiful rose garden in the centre of the village. The statue commemorates and honours working dogs and cattle dog trials. For more information drop in to the newly accredited Visitor Information Centre. There is also a caravan park located in Bonalbo.
