Taree is a city on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales.
Taree is a larger service town, on the Manning River, around 20km from the coast. The Pacific Highway used to pass straight through the town, and cross the narrow Manning River bridge, but now a freeway section bypasses the town, which no longer has the volume of trucks and traffic passing through it.
There are attractions and tourist facilities in Taree, but it is not developed as a major tourist destination in itself. It is certainly a reasonble place to stop on the drive along the Pacific Highway.
- The Big Oyster is one of the Big things in Australia, just north of the town. You can lookout through the opening in the oyster shell. Breathtakingly tacky.
