About Taree

Taree, New South Wales

Taree is a town on the Mid North CoastNew South WalesAustralia. Taree and nearby Cundletown were settled in 1831 by William Wynter. Since then Taree has grown to a population of around 20,000 people and is the centre of a significant agricultural district. It is 16 km from the sea coast, and 317 km north of SydneyTaree can be reached by train via the North Coast Railway, and by the Pacific Highway.

Taree is within the local government area of the City of Greater Taree, the state electorate of Myall Lakes and the Federal electorate of Lyne.

 

The old St Paul's Presbyterian Church.
For the personal name, see Taree (disambiguation).

 

The name Taree is derived from "tareebit" the local native Biripi word meaning tree by the river, or more specifically, the Sandpaper Fig (Ficus coronata).

 

History

 

Taree was laid out as a private town in 1854 by Henry Flett, the son-in-law of William Wynter who had originally settled the area in 1831. 100 acres (40 ha) had been set aside for the private township and 40 lots were initially sold. Taree was declared a municipality on 26 March 1885 and the first municipal council was elected by the residents. In 1844, the government of New South Wales had established Winghamat the head of navigation of the Manning River as its administrative centre which hindered Taree becoming the major centre of the region.

This changed, however, when the North Coast railway line was connected to Taree but not Wingham in 1913.Although connected to the railway, sea transport continued to dominate along the North Coast until the 1930s and this acted as a brake on Taree's growth. This changed when the Martin Bridge replaced the ferry across the Manning River in 1940.

The oldest surviving building in Taree is the old St Paul's Presbyterian Church, built in 1869 in the Victorian Gothic Revival style, next door to the current building, in Albert Street.

 

Education

 

There are several public schools in the Taree area including Taree Public School, Taree High School, Taree West Public School, Manning Gardens Public School, Chatham Public School, Chatham High School, and Cundletown Public School.

Private schools in and around Taree include Manning District Adventist School, Tinonee, Manning Valley Anglican College, Cundletown, Taree Christian College,Kolodong St Joseph's Primary School, and St Clare's High School.

Several post tertiary training facilities have a presence in Taree: the North Coast Institute of TAFE, Taree Community College, the Australian Technical College - Manning Valley Campus.

 

Tourism

 

 

Nearby towns include historic WinghamTinonee, and the beachside town of Old Bar.

A local tourist attraction is a building called "The World's Largest Oyster", also called "The Big Oyster".Big Things are a common form of tourist attraction in Australia. Like the Big Merino and Big Banana, the 'Oyster' is an artifact based on local produce; the Manning River produced 1,752,000 oysters during 2013.The Big Oyster was an unsuccessful business venture, known to the locals as a 'Big Mistake', and is now home to a motor dealership.

The Manning Entertainment Centre was built in the 1980s as the cultural centre of the district. It seats 505 people and has previously presented artists such as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Ballet and Dame Joan Sutherland. Local performers, including the district eisteddfod and local amateur dramatic societies, utilise it to provide cultural opportunities for the local community.

Located next to the Entertainment Centre and the Visitor Information Centre at the northern entrance to Taree is the Manning Aquatic and Leisure Centre. This facility includes a 25 metre indoor heated pool with slippery dip and a 50 metre outdoor pool and soon after the time of opening had the second most expensive pool entrance fee in Australia, the most expensive being a pool in PerthWestern Australia. The Aquatic Centre was built in the late 1990s – early 2000s to replace the Taree Pool, which has been redeveloped into a public park with outdoor stage.

The Manning Regional Art Gallery is located in a cottage style building next to Taree Public School. The art gallery hosts a changing selection of works by local artists and visiting exhibitions.
