John Churton Walk

By the time the Manning River reaches Taree it is a majestic river and the perfect setting to relax as you walk along the redeveloped foreshore in the centre of town. The foreshore now features new wide pathways, exercise equipment, enhanced playgrounds and new seating.

The opening of the John Churton Walk is commemorated by a plaque now mounted alongside the massive pulley wheels which were once high atop the Martin Bridge to open it for ships passing through. The river is also still home to rowing, sailing and other river based events reminiscent of regattas of old
