Halfway Creek is a district on the south eastern fringe of the Clarence Valley. It is about 35 kilometres south of Grafton and 25 kilometres north of Woolgoolga.
A spur of the Great Dividing Range juts towards the coast here, providing diverse topography on the eastern side of the Pacific Highway with some notable high points. Brown’s Knob at 329 metres is a major feature in this coastal range.
Glenugie Peak (Mount Elaine) can be clearly seen from most points in the district. It is on the eastern fringe of the plain between Halfway Creek and Grafton. It is an extinct volcano and basalt from these slopes was used in the construction of the rail bed of the main north rail line to Brisbane some 80 to 85 years ago.
