About our Grafton campus

Grafton TAFE Campus is an important part of the Clarence Valley community, offering students an ideal place to study and live.

Our campus features purpose built trades facilities including a painting and decorating showcase, a large automotive garage, specially fitted electrotechnology rooms, and multiple welding and metal work bays with a strong focus on safety. We also have an advanced music and screen facility, child studies and childcare centre, a restaurant-sized kitchen and on-campus restaurant, multiple IT labs, and a separate hair and beauty salon open to the public.

The township of Grafton sits on the banks of the beautiful Clarence River in the Bundjalung Aboriginal nation, and is known for its jacaranda trees, water sports and friendly country feel.
