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.

Stay safe[edit]

With less tourism the town has become less friendly at nightime. Best not to go wandering around the town at night. There are restaurants open in town which are safe to go to. Avoid the region of Bushland at night
