Farquhar Park Campground- Manning Entrance State Park

Private Campground - New South Wales


The Manning Entrance State Park is situated on the NSW Mid North Coast and comprises lands surrounding and including the Manning River's southern entrance at Old Bar. The 487 hectare site runs from Old Bar to the southern side of the Manning River's northern entrance at Manning Point and features a caravan park, primitive camping ground, sporting fields and historic airstrip.
