Located on the Hastings River and 19 kilometres west of Port Macquarie, Wauchope is a friendly town of country charm and hospitality. It was here in the mid 1800s that pioneers made the town famous as a timber town, and today features Timbertown, a major working re-creation of a typical 1800’s timber town. Now a modern rural centre, Wauchope is surrounded by picturesque farmland and forests and beyond, a hinterland of rainforest reserves and vast wilderness areas.
Country retreats, B&B’s and farmstays are the most popular choice of accommodation throughout the region.
