About our Macksville campus

Macksville TAFE Campus 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.

If you’re looking to enter the workforce armed with invaluable experience and practical skills, check out the courses available at our Macksville TAFE Campus.

    • This Saturday don't forget to switch off- but not in the way you think! It's Earth Hour, a global phenomenon that sees 50- 100 million people in over 35 countries switching off their lights to draw attention to tackling global warming. Did you know Earth Hour started in Australia in 2007? Join 1 in 3 Australians as they switch off on Saturday 19 March from 8.30- 9.30pm. #nctafe #thankyourself
