Wauchope has come a long way from its beginnings as ‘the timbertown’. Now it's a thriving, rural township with funky fashion, gorgeous home-wares, modern cafes while still retaining its laid-back charm.
This is the place to experience a genuine, working rural town with friendly locals, all just 20 minutes drive from the CBD of Port Macquarie. Wauchope has a strong and connected community happy to help you find your way around and it's a great base for exploring nearby World Heritage rainforest.
The town is set on the Hastings River, surrounded by farms and agriculture, and just a few minutes from the Pacific Highway turn-off. It is the gateway to the hinterland with over 40,000 hectares of National Parks and State Forests, one of NSW’s best kept secrets.
Wauchope is known as a Motorcyle Friendly Town and has some great rides in and around the area to enjoy. Take a look at their Motorcyle Ride Guide for some scenic route suggestions.
