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, and features extensive fine arts facilities including painting, drawing, printmaking and ceramics. 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.
