Our beautiful Manning River and its tributaries have long been havens used by visitors, holiday makers, locals, oyster farmers and anglers.
The Manning River is one of only two deltas in the southern hemisphere with two river entrances, the main entrance at Harrington and the second at Farquhar Inlet, just south of Old Bar. The Manning River is a complex estuarine system which includes a number of branch creeks and channels.
There are a number of public ramps, wharves, pontoons, riverside parks, commercial tourist destinations and towns and villages scattered along the river.
