About TAFE NSW Macksville

TAFE NSW Macksville has a relaxed, friendly and social atmosphere. Wi Fi access makes our Tuscan gardens a popular place to study, while a wood fired pizza oven, café and music playing through the grounds during class breaks adds to the casual vibe.

We specialise in providing vocationally oriented entry-level education and training across the study areas of business, community services and information technology. The campus also features a sustainable herb and vegetable garden for students and the community to enjoy.

Macksville lies on the banks of the Nambucca River on the homelands of the Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal people, surrounded by fertile lands producing bananas, crops, beef and dairy products.
