A CANNABIS haul worth more than $300,000 has been uncovered by police at Jackass Creek in the Dalmorton State Forest.

General Duties and Target Action Group Police from Grafton attended the area west of Nymboida on Tuesday, after recent events and other illegal activities including rave parties.

While undertaking a walk into the bushland, police discovered a large clearing surrounded by fencing.

There was also an established watering system leading to a large number of cannabis plants in various stages of maturity, with some between 2-3m high.

A total of 121 plants were seized, with an estimated potential street value of $302,500.

Police had earlier that morning been making inquiries in the area to help find a young man who went missing from a 'bush doof' held at Buccarumbi, on the edge of the Dalmorton State Forest, on Saturday night.

He was returned home safely on Tuesday morning.

Coffs/Clarence crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson has said cannabis and drugs remain a serious issue for this community, with drugs like cannabis creating long term issues, and driving crime.

"Anyone with information should feel confident in contacting us or Crime Stoppers, where information can be provided anonymously," he said.
