Welcome to the Edmund Barton Centre Manning Valley/Great Lakes

Turn off the fast lane, take a breath and meander. Pause awhile and discover the secrets of the Manning Valley.

You'll find the remnants of an ancient riverside rainforest close to the main street of Wingham, which is matched in appeal by the welcoming warmth of the locals in the main street who enjoy pausing to have a yarn with visitors. They are proud of their heritage town surrounded by beautiful bushland.

From the centre of Taree on the river there are scores of villages and localities in the Manning Valley and Great Lakes- beautiful coastal towns with lagoons, lakes and glorious reaches of the river meeting the sea; the quaint and quiet inland villages that serve the farms rolling over the river flats and surrounding hills; the dramatic scenery of the mountain country; the wildlife to be glimpsed in forests.

And while our past history of pioneering days seems very close, so too we see a promising future in growth and prosperity as families choose to make the 'tree and sea change' from over crowded cities.

As a visitor you'll appreciate the quality of lifestyle, the beauty, the people, that make the Great Lakes and Manning Valley so special.

The Edmund Barton Centre is proud to be able to offer its Programs to the Great Lakes & Manning Valley Communities. Our Client Manager, Sally Reed is looking forward to meeting you call 0407 245 566.
