Just a short drive north of Clifton is the village of Nobby and the well known Rudd's Pub, which has an extensive display of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area's pioneering past. The Pub is dedicated to Steele Rudd, who lived in the area, and found inspiration there for his stories in 'On Our Selection'. Just a short stroll from the Pub is the Sister Kenny memorial. Sister Elizabeth Kenny also lived in the area and was known for her revolutionary treatment for the victims of polio.

Accommodation in the Clifton district ranges from farmstays, bed and breakfasts, pub stays, and a caravan park.
