Just a few hours’ drive north of Sydney, Taree is at the heart of the beautiful Manning Valley on the North Coast of NSW. The town is by the Manning River, a popular waterway for fishing, boating and rowing. Delicious oysters are farmed in the meandering river and nearby Great Lakes.
You’ll find plenty of accommodation options in Taree as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants serving fresh produce and seafood from the area. Check out the shows at the Manning Entertainment Centre and take the Taree Heritage Walk. A popular annual event on the river is the Easter Powerboat Spectacular.
From Taree, enjoy some of the best scenic drives in NSW. Explore the national park wilderness, wineries and farmers markets. Take the route through Coorabakh National Park, from Wingham to Elands, with the magnificent Ellenborough Falls a highlight. The sub-tropical rainforest at Wingham Brush Nature Reserve has a boardwalk to follow. Tapin Tops is splendid park wilderness, too.
