Welcome to Port Macquarie
Making the most of its position at the entrance to the subtropical coast, Port, as it’s commonly known, might be a mini-metropolis but it remains overwhelmingly holiday focused. A string of beautiful beaches fans out either side of town, all a short driving distance from the centre. Most are great for swimming and surfing, and they seldom get crowded. There are enough interesting museums and attractions, plus a decent culinary scene, to warrant a stay of at least a couple of nights.
The local Birpai people are the traditional custodians of this land.
