The Lawrence Road follows the western bank of the Clarence River and connects Grafton to the township of Lawrence which is then linked to Woodford Island and Maclean by a ferry crossing. The scenic and fully sealed road is a popular alternative to the pacific highway. Queen street, Grafton runs into this Lawrence Road and just north of the city is the old alumny creek public school which has been set up as a museum of early rural education. A large sports field and picnic facilities are adjacent groups can make arrangements to visit. A little further north lies the small village of Southgate, the community centre for the surrounding farms. A small vehicular ferry links Southgate to Ulmarra and provides the link in a pleasant round trip, from Grafton.
