Coutts Crossing

(population 1,353[1]) is a rural village located in the Clarence Valley region and Clarence Valley Council of New South Wales, Australia. The village is about 18 kilometres south-west of Grafton on the banks of the Orara River along the ArmidaleGrafton Road. The village is named after Thomas Coutts, a settler who established the nearby Kangaroo Creek pastoral station in 1840.

The village was established as a service centre for the local farming community in the 1860s. However, today the village is a dormitory suburb with majority of residents commuting into Grafton. Despite this, the village boasts a tavern, general store, community hall and church. The local primary school was established in 1913 and as of 2009[update] has 99[2] pupils enrolled.

In the last twenty-five years, a number of sporting and community services have been established, including tennis and squash courts as well as soccer and croquet grounds, a nine hole golf course, a pre-school, a heritage centre and a combined Rural Fire Service and State Emergency Service centre, established in 1997.
