With a population of 20,000 Taree is a popular tourist destination for people that want to get away from it all and enjoy a slower pace of life in beautiful surroundings. With the availability of affordable and luxury housing, choosing from beach, forest or township living, the Mid Coast region really is a great place to live and work.
