Port Macquarie

Port Macquarie is a water lover's dream destination. Swimming, surfing, sailing, snorkelling, fishing, whale watching, kayaking - the list goes on.

With the mouth of the wide, lazy Hastings River on one side and the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean on the other, Port Macquarie is a water lover's paradise where surfing, water skiing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, dolphin and whale watching, scuba diving and great fishing are all available. Away from the beach, there are plenty of activities for all interests and ages including speed boat, 4WD tours, scenic river cruises and family attractions, or explore the galleries and museums.

Combine the above with great shopping, good food and wine and for your ideal holiday or short break, you have just what you need. To ensure a great stay, take a stroll along the riverside break-wall, watch the pelicans drift by, climb up to historic Tacking Point Lighthouse, take a scenic flight in a sea plane, historic tiger moth, jet fighter or microlight or visit the patients of the Koala Hospital.
