Taree

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.
