The commercial centre for the Manning Valley is Taree and is only 25 mins away from the retreat. Taree is quite a large town with several shopping malls and specialty stores in addition to all the companies and organizations to support the 47,000+ population of the valley.

Further up the valley are many smaller towns, historical sites and National Parks climbing up into the surrounding forests and farmland with many craft stores and cafes.
