Great place for a nice easy walk or bike ride to enjoy the ocean views of Harrington. Good place for fishing from the breakwall.

A nice place to stop for a short break - or longer stay. If you like fishing it’s even better. Well worth a visit.

A must do when visiting. Lots of bird life and fish. Many keen fishermen trying their luck but it seemed the pelicans and divers were having more success. It’s a good long walk along the Manning River.

The Sea, Manning River, Sand Dunes, Lagoon & the township of Harrington are all joined by the iconic Harrington Breakwall. Such a great fishing spot, swimming & boating area.

Very long and challenging wall. The walk got rougher as you reached the end, but what a view out to the ocean.

Both the Sea wall & River wall are good spots to fish from. At the moment you can walk across the sand island from the Sea Breakwall again. Nature has changed the river flow. Lovely walks to either end, with fabulous views to the ocean...More

It is well worth taking the time to explore the Wall. The tide times changes your experience. We just love the surprises. It might be dolphins, schools of fish, bird life or even our most fascinating walk was when we encountered a school of sharks...More

Excellent place for a power walk due to the fresh air and wonderful scenery. The rock wall contains a lot of memorial plaques of loved ones no longer with them. The path on the rock wall is level and great for all abilities and ages.

There are different Rocks painted out of memory for fishermen who have passed. If you do, please choose an empty rock as two there are in memory of my Pop who fished there for 70 years and loved Harrington.
