Manning Point on the Coastline of the Manning Valley

The sea and the south arm of the Manning River meet at this idyllic spot on the coastline of the Manning Valley. Manning Point has long provided a place to get away from it all and throw in a line. A picturesque village located almost at the mouth of the Manning River, it sits on a narrow spit between the river and the sea. It is part of a landscape of islands and the many tributaries that form the Manning River delta, the largest in Australia. Today with a population of nearly 300, it offers holiday accommodation, a general store, a bowling club, two caravan parks, several cafes, a gallery and a bait shop and jetty. The ocean provides sandy beaches for swimming, whilst the river provides excellent fishing facilities. There has been a lot of flooding recently which explains the abundance of dead trees and timber in the water and around the jetties.
Across the water is Harrington, the town which grew around a pilot station for vessels entering the river, which became a port for cedar, maize and farm produce from further up river. A breakwater which was built in 1894 provides excellent fishing for the enthusiast and safer boating. A large new estate named Harrington Waters features beautiful new homes with canal access and marinas for boat-owners.
