Harrington is a very popular holiday spot on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales - just north of Taree. There are plenty of things to do in this small village:

  • fish from the breakwall - very popular spot for black fish
  • take your boat up the Manning River (fishing or just exploring) - maybe head out to sea
  • stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, sailboarding in the protected waters behind the breakwall
  • golf at Harrington Waters
  • Great places to eat - Harrigans Irish Pub, Harrington Hotel, Bowling Club, Ems Thai Kitchen, several takeaway shops selling fresh seafood etc
  • two caravan parks
  • Visit Crowdy Head - another fishing village nearby - see Crowdy Head Lighthouse
  • Harrington Beach which stretches from Harrington to Crowdy Head, 
  • great walking and cycling paths along the waters edge
  • 4WD on the beach - access just north of Harrington Beach Holiday Park (Beach Permits are available at Ritchies Bait and Tackle).
  • shopping centre
  • Pilot Hill Lookout - telling the story of Harrington's Maritime Heritage, and great view of the area.
  • Harrington Bollards - unique carved bollards of the people that have made Harrington what it is today - located along the river foreshore . 

We visit Harrington often and really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this pretty little spot on the coast.

Harrington is one of my favourite mid-north coastal towns, it has such a welcoming feel. The big lagoon in the middle of town is a great place for fishing or to explore on a kayak/SUP/boat as it is nice and sheltered with lots of marine life, including dolphins. Having lunch and a beer at the Harrington Hotel is about as good as it gets. Great food and a beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking the lagoon. The Irish pub in town is also worth a visit, set on the water with a great view.
