Port Macquarie is a quiet coastal town right in the middle of Sydney and Brisbane. It is located on the mouth of the Hastings River, and features 18 different beaches to choose from.
Most of the residents in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Shire live in the town of Port Macquarie and its nearby suburbs. It is also a popular place for retirement communities where the peaceful environment and beautiful surroundings offer a relaxing change of pace to the metropolitan lifestyle. Within the outskirts of the Port-Macquarie-Hastings Shire is the nearby town of Wauchope, which also serves as the gateway to the popular Gold Coast Hinterlands tourist spots.

If you look through our collection of over 20 different Port Macquarie hotels and accommodations, you may be pleased to find out that many of our available options are located right on the coast itself. One of the area’s main selling points is its quiet beachtown charm and uncrowded beaches, and the hotels, motels, serviced apartments and lodges have certainly capitalized on that fact.
You’ll have a lot of places to choose from along Pacific Drive which is right next to the coast. There are also many choices near the town’s marina, and commercial and tourist centres along Gordon Street and Lord Street. Head over to the southern end of the town and you’ll find more accommodations along Lighthouse Beach, which is also very close to the golf courses.
The Port Macquarie CBD is well developed and features two shopping centres, a marina, a modern arts and entertainment centre and a visitor information centre. There are also regular bus routes that travel to the neighbouring towns like Laurieton, Wauchope, Kempsey, Lake Cathie and Bonny Hills, so getting around without a car is not a problem.
Dining options in Port Macquarie are also outstanding with over 100 different restaurants, cafes and pubs. Whether you have cravings for gourmet food, Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, Thai or just good old fish and chips your taste buds won’t be left wanting. The region is also home to many local wineries which produce different grape varietals like chardonnay, Semillon, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot noir. A great way to try out these local vintages is by dropping by any of the local vineyards where you will be treated to the staff’s hospitality as well as the local produce.
Another crowd pleaser in Port Macquarie is its local koala bear population. It can be found only 10 minutes away from the town centre at the Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park. The park also serves as a breeding centre for Koalas. Other native and exotic animals like snow leopards, salt water crocodiles, eastern grey kangaroos, quolls, eastern brown snakes, red belly black snakes and red-necked wallabies are also featured in the 2 hectare park.
And within the town itself and a few blocks away from the commercial centre, one can also get up close and personal with the koalas at the Koala Hospital and Study Centre. Located inside the Macquarie Nature Reserve, the koala hospital takes care of sick and orphaned koalas that have survived through bushfires, dog attacks or car crashes.
The town of Port Macquarie also contains many heritage sites due to its significance as one of the earliest settlements established outside of Sydney. A number of historic buildings can still be found all throughout Greater Port Macquarie. St. Thomas Church, for example, was built by convicts I 1824 and is the fifth oldest Anglican church still in use in Australia. There is also the historic courthouse built in 1869, and the Tacking Point Lighthouse built in 1879.
Port Macquarie is also home to a large community of artists with close to 100 arts and cultural groups continuing to be active in the area. Consequently there are a number of galleries, exhibitions and performances one can see during different parts of the year.
30 minutes away In the nearby town of Wauchope is the popular heritage theme park, Timbertown. It pays tribute to the town’s early existence as a logging town and features steam train rides, miniature railway rides, horse and carriage rides and demonstrations of colonial tradesmen like blacksmiths and timber cutters.
But if you are looking for a bit more of an adventure, there are tons of fun outdoor activities to be had in Port Macquarie. There are always good surf breaks in many of the beach areas, and the clear blue waters are great for swimming, deep sea fishing, dolphin spotting and paragliding. The Hastings River is also a great spot for fishing where you can catch some bream, blackfish, tailor, whiting or flathead. You can also take either a relaxing cruise up the river or a more thrilling jet boat ride for a more memorable, albeit shorter, experience.
The prestigious Ironman Australia is also held every year on Port Macquarie, and is considered as one of the most scenic triathlon courses in the world. Every summer in December, the town also plays host to the Festival of the Sun, a three-day music festival that features both local and international artists, and where attendees can enjoy tons of great music right next to the beach.
