Grafton Clocktower With Coastal Cloud


Grafton Clock tower celebrated it's 100th birthday in 2009. The names of the mayors of Grafton City Council were once recorded on its marble tablets. With the 2004 amalgamation of all the local government areas of the valley into the Clarence Valley Council this practice was discontinued. The last name recorded mayoral name of Grafton City was Shirley Adams.

  7. There are monuments to mayors of Sydney all over this city. Many times, building the monument appears to be the only thing they have done during their tenure!!
