Harrington is uniquely located, both close to Taree (20 minutes) with bus station, train station and airport, as well as the magnificent hinterland including the Three Brothers region. Whether you’re just out for a stroll along a rainforest boardwalk, or a more intense medium-to-difficult graded trail in Crowdy Bay National Park, we’ve got the recreational options to make your holiday memorable and fun.

Harrington is known as a fishing paradise with the bountiful coastline plus 150kms of the mighty Manning River starting here and ready to explore. Whether you are a fanatical boat fisher, an adventurous rock or surfcaster, or simply a family with kids who enjoys relaxing with a line dangling from a jetty or breakwater, Harrington will satisfy your needs. The fishing is fantastic for jewfish, snapper, perch, bream, blackfish and whiting.

Pick up some oysters or fresh seafood from Stones Oysters to add to your picnic and explore Harrington or perhaps one of the tranquil hideaway and vibrant villages in our area. Famed for beautiful sunrises and just as dramatic sunsets and positioned amongst pristine national parks and beautiful beaches, Harrington has loads of activities for the family.

The European history of the area has a strong maritime flavour as captured by the creative totem characters dotted through the town. At Pilots Hill a monument guards the graves of ships’ pilots lost on the dangerous sandbars standing just off the river mouth.
