Walkers Marina Hotel

Posted by Picasa

Walkers Marina Hotel ,South Grafton, was once the 'Hilton' of the Northern Rivers. Supreme Court judges, politicians and the rural gentry would stay in its 'luxury' rooms overlooking the Clarence River. A lot has changed since the early 20th century but over the last few years it has been beautifully restored. I will post some shots of its over the top red cedar interiors soon. The 3rd floor was once a rooftop grandstand bar to watch rowing regattas on the river.
