Port Macquarie, Australia

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. Action and adventure in a high speed boat, 4wd tours, scenic river cruises and family attractions. Explore the galleries, arts and crafts centres and museums.

Combine this with great shopping, good food and wine and for your ideal holiday or short break, you have just what you need.

Must do:

  • Take a stroll along the riverside breakwall, watch the pelicans drift by and chat to the anglers.
  • Pack a picnic or grab some local fish and chips and find yourself a shady spot beside the river.
  • Climb up to historic Tacking Point Lighthouse and sip champagne at sunset.
  • Keep an eye out for pods of dolphins as you stroll along the coastal walking tracks.
  • Take a scenic flight in a sea plane, historic tiger moth, jet fighter or microlight.
  • Dine out on some fresh Hasting River Oysters – freshly prepared at one of the riverside cafes.
  • Visit the patients of the Koala Hospital.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
