Port Macquarie is home to Australia’s Koala Hospital. This seaside town on New South Wales’ North Coast also boasts of stunning beaches and beautiful canals resulting from being next to the sparkling Hastings River.
The Koala Hospital at Port Macquarie not only rehabilitates and cares for these native Australian animals but also educates visitors and offers tours to the public where they can interact with these cute creatures. The large Sea Acres National Park houses more of the exotic wildlife of the region, as well as the largest coastal rainforest of New South Wales. Visitors can admire the beauty of the area as they journey along the boardwalk that leads them to a scenic lookout overlooking the coast and the Tasman Sea. The walking track from the park, a part of the picturesque Port Macquarie Coastal Walk, leads towards the Tacking Point Lighthouse, where lucky visitors may also be able to engage in some whale watching as they watch the waves crash onto the vast shoreline of the long Lighthouse Beach. Up in the main centre of Port Macquarie, visitors can grab some delicious fish and chips as they enjoy the bustling atmosphere at Town Beach and Oxley Beach, or explore the rich history of Port Macquarie art the Port Macquarie Museum. The nearby Mid North Coast Maritime Museum details over 100 years of the maritime history of the area. Visitors will also enjoy a range of local cultural talent at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery.
