About our Kempsey campus

Kempsey TAFE Campus has a great community feel, a focus on sustainability and friendly staff and students who get involved with local projects like community gardens and agricultural events. Here you will find an active student life with regular events like the Poetry Slam and Reconciliation Day activities, and the popular Drumming Circle.

The campus is home to trade workshops for automotive, metal fabrication and welding. It also features beauty and hairdressing facilities as well as extensive fashion room facilities. We also have specialist facilities for children’s services and aged care studies.

Kempsey TAFE Campus, in the Dunghutti Aboriginal nation, is an integral part of the Kempsey community, which is surrounded by fertile beef and dairy farmlands.

  • Franc recently finished his Diploma of Fine Arts at Kempsey TAFE and ‘The Forest’ will be his first solo exhibition at the Manning Regional Art Gallery in six years. “The exhibition gave me confirmation I was on the right path,” Franc said. “It gave me confidence in my art and the reaffirmation of the importance of my studies at TAFE.” Congratulations Franc on this amazing exhibition! #beambitious
