Located on the beautiful Manning River, Taree is the major commercial centre of the Manning Valley and is a great place to base yourself to explore the region. There are a wide variety of accommodation options for your stay, ranging from cheap and cheerful motels to charming riverside apartments.

Taree offers a great variety of shopping with modern undercover complexes, arcades, boutique gift and clothing shops, craft centres, antiques and speciality stores. While you’re out and about, be sure to grab a coffee or lunch at one of our many popular cafes and restaurants that are dotted around the town.

Our recreational facilities include numerous sporting fields, the Recreation Centre, racecourse, ten pin bowling, Manning Entertainment Centre, aquatic and leisure centre, and rowing and sailing clubs. For a relaxing day out, take a plunge in our modern Aquatic Centre with indoor and outdoor swimming or play some golf at one of our five excellent golf courses.

Pack a picnic and explore the riverside parks with their shady grassed areas, meandering paths and playgrounds that overlook the flowing water. For some adventure and excitement, grab your kayak, boat or Jet Ski and get out on the mighty Manning River itself. Another must-do is a visit to the beautiful Apex Lookout in Taree West.
