There is a relaxed coastal vibe; enjoy the great outdoors, picturesque beaches and endless waterways, but also the finer things in life - good food and coffee, a treasure trove of shopping and some great wine bars.

Fresh salty air, frolicking dolphins and sandcastles, these are just a few things that describe one of Australia's favourite holiday spots.

No matter what your age there are plenty of activities and experiences to entice you to come out of your shell as you discover this magical coastal playground!  The vibrant CBD of Port Macquarie is surrounded by water, with the Hastings River on one side and stunning beaches on the other, making it one of Australia’s best walking towns. You will feel right at home in flip flops or high heels.
