The Manning Valley was first explored by John Oxley in late 1818 but the first town did not appear in the Valley until 1850's. Taree did not start to prosper until the 1920's when the arrival of the railway saw the town increase in popularity and industry start to establish itself in agriculture, forestry and dairying due to reliable access to the Sydney markets.

Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
