Nature in Taree
Taree's location on the Manning River and by the beautiful Manning Valley makes it a great position to explore the area's golden beaches and lush rainforests. The town is a popular fishing spot, with a large section of the Manning River reserved for recreational fishing.
Taree is an excellent base for exploring the many natural attractions of the beautiful Manning River Valley. Scenic drives around Taree are some of the best in NSW; don't miss the route through the Coorabakh National Park, from Wingham to Elands, with Ellenborough Falls a highlight, and through Tapin Tops National Park. The sub-tropical rainforest at Wingham Brush Nature Reserve has a boardwalk to follow.
Boating, fishing, swimming and surfing are popular at pretty coastal towns from Wallabi Point to Old Bar and Crowdy Head. Don't miss fishing and surfing at Old Bar and Wallabi Point, 15 km south-east of Taree, or the beautiful beach at Saltwater, just south of Old Bar. Crowdy Head Lighthouse, a 40-minute drive from Taree, has sensational ocean panoramas and is a great spot for whale-watching (in season).
