Discover this popular holiday destination with luxury Port Macquarie accommodation
Ask any NSW local where they spent their summer holidays as a kid and many of them will probably say Port Macquarie, a popular holiday town four hours' drive from Sydney.
Set at the mouth of the Hastings River, Port Macquarie is known for its pretty beaches, which are perfect for paddling in the shallows, riding the waves or simply taking them in from the balcony of your North Coast accommodation. What beach do you start with? Port Macquarie has 17 to choose from and there is a sandy strip for every type of holiday. Flynns Beach is perhaps one of the most-loved beaches, with regular patrols, shady picnic spots, a kiosk and plenty of prime real estate for you to stake your umbrella. Comb through rock pools at Wash House Beach, enjoy having Shelly Beach almost to yourself or catch at wave at Town Beach.
A treasure trove of parks, reserves and lookout points are dotted across the Port Macquarie region and offer sights worth packing your camera for. Willi Willi National Park is home to Waterfall Walk and some beautiful picnic spots, and the North Brother summit at Dooragan National Park has breathtaking views.
If you’re feeling like more of an adventure, take a camel safari over the sands at Lighthouse Beach – you might even spot some dolphins or whales frolicking off the coast if you’re there at the right time. Visitors can also get up close to local fauna at the Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park, or discover the local flora at the Sea Acres Rainforest boardwalk. History-hunters can uncover Port Macquarie's past by learning about the region's first inhabitants, the Birpai people, and check out sites established by British settlement in 1821. Walking tours are operated by Port Macquarie Hastings Heritage.
To refuel afterwards, tuck into local specialties like Hastings River oysters, cheese and wine at a range of delicious cafes and restaurants.
