The Manning River Times has been proudly serving the people of the Manning Region, on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, since 1869.
Based in Taree, the major commercial centre of the Manning Valley (population 49,000), The Times is published on Friday mornings.
It circulates to an area bounded by Johns River in the north, Bulahdelah in the south and Elands-Comboyne in the west, the valley's showpiece being the spectacular Manning River which winds from the mountains to the sea.
Taree and Wingham are the historic heart of the Manning Valley. Both sit on the Manning River, the lifeblood of the valley.
Taree has modern shopping facilities, thriving cafe cultural and arts scene, as well as extensive sporting facilities.
Wingham offers visitors the opportunity to step back in time, with many historic buildings set around the town common (Central Park).
