Visitors to Clarence praise the Big River

THE powerboat racing on the Clarence River over the weekend brought many sports enthusiasts to Grafton, including Kerrie Glenn and her two children.

Kerrie, who travelled from Ballina to watch her friend’s race in the two-day, event said the river was one of Grafton’s greatest treasures.

“The river offers so much and it is just good old-fashion fun that doesn’t cost the earth and keeps the family together,” she said.

The keen water sport family said they travel to the area regularly to meet with friends and utilise the river.

“We are right into wake boarding and water-skiing, and the excitement that the children get out of it is great,” Kerrie said.

“We come here regularly because we have friends from the Gold Coast and Coffs that come to join us, so it makes a great meeting place.”

Kerrie took the opportunity to meet up with friends on the river bank.
