Travel Tips for Taree
Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being abroad is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. In Australia it was sometimes rather difficult. We found out that there are quite some local beers, only known in that particular area. But anyway, we did like the Tooheys.
Tooheys is an Australian brewery in the suburb of Lidcombe in Sydney and is a standard lager. The brewery dates back to 1869 and the brand Tooheys was first brewed in 1930. Tooheys can be found on tap at almost any bar in New South Wales, although it is not so common in other states and sometimes even has a poor reputation overthere. We saw that it was also available in cans and bottles as Tooheys Draught. Good taste and flavour!
The little town of Tinonee
The town of Tinonee is where i was raised, situated 10 minutes west of taree. With nearly nothing there except an old, yet well restored open air theator, a neat little craft store and an aborigional art gallery.
Life here is very quiet people keep to them selves usually, mind you they are verry friendly too.
Wingham Brush Nature Reserve - Hiking / Auch!
It is hard to believe that each of the rainforest giants with their massive buttress roots began life as tiny seed deposited in the fork of a host tree by roosting bird or bat. They grew year by year, to the ground, eventually taking over their host to become some of New South Wales' largest remaining fig trees.
Like many rainforests, Wingham Brush is rich in trees producing nectar, pollen-rich flowers and succulent fruit. Some of the more interesting trees include the Giant Stinging Tree. The leaves of these trees can deliver a painful sting so be careful not to touch them!
Wingham Brush Nature Reserve - Flying Foxes!
The dense riverside reserve is gome to thousands of Flying Foxes which migrate here annually from September to May when the Brush is replete with ferns, orchids, giant Moreton Fig trees, bougainvillea, other subtropical plants and 100 species of birds, including a number of Brush turkeys.
Wingham Brush Nature Reserve's role a maternity site comes therefore in Oxtober as thousands of Grey-headed Flying Foxes arrive to give birth. Each has a single offspring which clings to its mother's nipple and fur, even while the female venture out at night for up to 40 kilometres to forage for food. Young bats can fly when 8 - 10 weeks old, becoming independent at three months. Following mating in March - April the colony disperses but several hundreds bats usually stay over the winter.
Taree the largest town on the Manning River
"Taree the center of the Manning River region"
Beyond the fact that Taree the center is of the Manning River District, can i tell little about this town. The night we arrived it was dark, nothing seen. At our next visit we had rain, so we have only seen the nice indoor shopping center. A few days later was when driving into a parking garage the petrol tank leak. Resulting fireman and police there and the garage was closed. Many people are angry because they could not get their car. The last visit we had needed to book a flight tikets from Port Macquarie to Sydney and reserving a rental car for our trip around. Both gave problems on the correct dates. But after a long day I succeeded.
The city is situated on the Manning River. It is easily accessible by train, car and even has a small airport. We feel the city is a great base for exploring the Manning River region.
