Situated on the Macleay River, Kempsey is a great place to experience nature, with many scenic drives and bushwalks in the area to enjoy as well as a scenic coastline to explore.

The 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 offers courses in Design/Fashion and the Visual Arts and features extensive fine arts facilities for painting, drawing, printmaking and ceramics.
