Tourism is the Clarence Valley's biggest earner

A RECORD million-plus visitors spending $321.27 million in the year to March 31, 2013, have made tourism the biggest contributor to the region's economy, according to Clarence River Tourism manager Jenny Massie.

Ms Massie said her office was busy preparing for the upcoming school holidays.

"The beginning of the season is always a busy time for Clarence River Tourism," she said.

"It is important to get all the elements in place so that information is at hand for visitors to help make booking and staying in the Clarence easy and enjoyable."

The team from Sydney Weekender visited Wooli for a show that will go to air on September 21.
