Harrington is located on the northern side of the mouth of the Manning River, east of Taree.

Harrington is associated with Coopernook and Lansdowne as the Lower Manning cluster.  Lower Manning Uniting Church’s Mission Statement is “To be the People of God in this area by increasing our interaction with the local community in ways that offer pastoral care, enhance the worship of God and lead to Christian growth and learning.”
