Stay, Your Way

Out and about in Port Mac

If you’re after a combination of history, wildlife, beaches, rainforest and mountains on your next camping trip, you’re gonna love exploring Port Macquarie.

Tucked snugly between the shores of the Hastings River and no less than 17 surf beaches, Port Macquarie is famous for its supreme water frontage, as well as its koala habitats and well-preserved convict past. Make sure you stay a few days so you have time to check out the town’s heritage buildings, complete the 9km coastal walk and explore the river by kayak. And why not throw in a couple of the coastal lakes just for good measure?

If you’re heading to Port Macquarie from Tamworth along the Oxley Highway, you’ll find yourself winding through the lush Gondwana rainforests and mountain peaks that make up at least a dozen national parks. A good place to start exploring is Apsley Falls, where the walks take you right along the rim of the sheer gorge walls.

On GoSeeAustralia you’ll find a heap of caravan parks and campgrounds surrounding Port Macquarie, so you can find the perfect campsite for your trip. Get out there.
