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.

  • Attention Hospitality and Tourism professionals of tomorrow! As part of TAFE NSW Open Week, Grafton Campus is running information sessions for courses in Hospitality and Tourism on Thursday 19th of January from 11am to 3pm. Come down to Student Central - Grafton Campus, explore our facilities, meet our teachers, and learn what fantastic opportunities are on offer to help you get where you want to be faster! "Not only did studying Hospitality Management take me to Singapore on a study tour, but it helped me to reach a supervisory position first in a 5-star hotel, then in the food, wine and media industry, all in the space of 18 months! I had a truly excellent time, with supportive teachers who held practical lessons that you actually use outside of the classroom and in the workplace. Thank you TAFE!" - Charlotte, TAFE NSW Hospitality Graduate Be Job Ready Be In Demand Be Smart With Your Money Be Ambitious
