Copmanhurst is a pretty village overlooking the Clarence River with a population of approximately 400 people. The residents are open, friendly country people with very strong pride for their community. Stop in at the hotel and have lunch and a drink with the locals. You can stock up on supplies or grab a takeaway at the General Store. There are two parks near the centre of the village where you can take a rest from your travels. Dotted around the Copmanhurst District are art studio/galleries with excellent local artists displaying their unique works. The Copmanhurst District offers many excellent scenic drives to those that want to get out and explore the hinterland. A loop drive will take you out along the Gwydir Highway past Jackadgery, the Mann River, Cangai or Broadwater Bridge, cross the Clarence River and along the Clarence Way to Copmanhurst. Drives into the Camelback Mountain and Mount Marsh areas can be done with a 4WD. Detailed information regarding these activities can be gathered at the Clarence River Visitor Information Centre near McDonalds in South Grafton.
