Port Macquarie Tourism

Port Macquarie, in New South Wales, is a coastal town home to the famous Koala Hospital in Australia. Located between Sydney and Brisbane, the town is home to stunning beaches, excellent walking and hiking trails, wonderful gardens and beautiful canals resulting from being next to the sparkling Hastings River. Aussies from larger cities nearby come here for the fresh produce and ocean catches on offer, with local succulent oysters being the star attraction. Visitors will find many trendy restaurants and eateries to choose from as well, with fresh cheese, strawberries and delectable wine from the vineyards in the region gracing every other menu.

Experiencing a temperate climate for most of the year, the town offers excellent opportunities for a range of outdoor activities such as cycling, fishing, horseriding and even thrilling watersports such as surfing, kayaking, parasailing, and water skiing, among others. From the months of May up to early November, whale spotting is a highly sought-after activity. Port Macquarie also serves as a base to explore the nearby national park areas, making it much more than a stopover town in the country.
