For the Kids

Pack the car, the kids and come and enjoy your next family holiday in the Manning Valley.

There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained outdoors with lots of beaches to choose from, waterfalls to visit, National Parks to explore, waterways to fish and parks to play in. For a big day out, we’ve also go the Big Buzz Fun Park which has waterslides, trampolines, putt putt golf and more.

For those rainy days, we’ve still got you covered with ten pin bowling, a movie cinema and our Manning Valley Libraries also have great school holiday programs.

Manning Valley Libraries

Manning Valley Libraries includes five libraries across the Manning Valley at Taree, Wingham, Hallidays Point, Harrington and Old Bar.  Our libraries are the ‘community lounge room’ – so when you visit one of our libraries you can browse for a book or DVD, lounge around in our comfy chairs and read a magazine or use the wi-fi or a computer.  You can enjoy a wide range of regular and school holiday events and workshops.  We have an extensive local history and family history archive of documents, images and printed resources – so why not look up an ancestor while you are visiting.  We also have ‘print from anywhere’ facilities where you can print from your PC or mobile device to a library printer. Our libraries are open weekdays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. Taree Library is open from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays.
