Close to the heart of Port Macquarie and just a few hundred metres from the beach, Macquarie Nature Reserve offers a peaceful setting surrounded by the region's past.

Driving up the long curving driveway, you'll be thrown back in time as you catch glimpses of the beautiful old Roto House. The nature reserve is also an important wildlife corridor, and is home to a koala hospital. Children will love learning from the volunteers about the work of the Koala Preservation Society to rehabilitate and release sick and orphaned koalas.

It's so picturesque here that many choose to have their wedding or special celebration in the lovely gardens. Others prefer to spend a relaxing afternoon picnicking in the shade of the large old magnolia tree near Roto House, or wandering through the extensive grounds of tall eucalypts, exotic plants and gardens.
