Your community

Situated in the Macleay Valley on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Kempsey Shire has a vibrant community of around 30,000 people. While most residents live in the towns of Kempsey, South West Rocks or Crescent Head, the shire also has many villages and rural localities spread across its 3381 square kilometres.

Kempsey Shire Council’s corporate vision is to lead and work with our community to build an inspired, connected Macleay Valley.
