Harrington is a sleepy enclave on New South Wales’ Barrington Coast. With its picturesque river and iconic breakwall, this coastal town offers a unique blend of natural beauty and leisurely activities.
Harrington is blessed with the scenic Manning River, which flows gently through the town. It's the perfect place to unwind and connect with nature. Take a leisurely boat ride, cast a fishing line, or simply relax by the riverbanks and watch the world go by.
Harrington boasts one of its most iconic features: the renowned breakwall. This well-recognized landmark has been an integral part of Harrington's landscape since its construction in 1894. The breakwall was originally built to safeguard the entry channel for maritime traffic, and it stretches about 2 kilometers upstream and 1 kilometer out to sea. Remarkably, the construction of this formidable structure spanned an impressive 33 years.
