Sport

Here in the Manning Valley we love our sport and the great outdoors inspire a lot of the activities that happen throughout the region.

For those that don’t mind a hit of golf, there are some great 9 and 18 hole courses dotted around the Manning Valley. Bowls is another favourite pastime of the locals and they always welcome newcomers to the sport.

For the active traveller, we have some of the best mountain bike and walking trails on the coast so you can work up a sweat in one of our National Parks. Or if you prefer to stay in the car and explore, we also have some great 4WDing on our beaches and in our National Parks.
