Pillar Valley is a small locality situated in Northern NSW, Australia.

East Coast of NSW
The valley is nestled between The Coast Range and Pillar Mountain.

The Coast Range runs north-south, parallel to the coast and about 15 km inland, from West of Woolgoolga in the south through to West of Evans Head in the North. The range is dissected by the Clarence River around Tyndale and Ashby. The might Clarence River actually cuts through the range in two places, forming the massive Woodford Island in between. At high points along the range, peaks exceed 300 metres. The range separates the Clarence valley from the coastal heathlands that drain through four smaller rivers; the Red Rock, Wooli Wooli and Sandon Rivers to the South of the Clarence, and the Esk River to the North, which drains into the Clarence close to its mouth at Iluka.

Pillar Mountain is a sandstone peak situated just to the West of the range. Rising from the valley floor, the cliffed edges of the mountain rise to a U-shaped plateau at around 300 metres altitude. One edge of the U runs like a bread-saw type knife on edge for about 1 kilometre, with sandstone columns or pillars extending beyond the mountain top, giving the mountain its name.
