Manning Point Beach

Manning Point Beach commences on the southern side of the sandy 500 metre wide Manning River entrance. It extends south west, initially as a low sandy 2.5 kilometre long spit, then as a steep, coarse narrow beach for a total of 10 kilometres to the southern mouth of the river, called Farquhar Inlet.

The riverfront town of Manning Point, with two caravan parks, is located south of the spit.

Manning Point Beach is the only four wheel drive access point for the camping ground at Farquhar Park. All vehicles driving on Manning Point Beach need a beach permit issued by either Greater Taree City Council or Great Lakes Council.
