The Port Macquarie region has a flourishing food, wine and creative scene, inspired by our stunning surrounds. Our new Taste Trails are five specially curated 'Insider's Guides' providing local insights into some of the region's best experiences, including maps and drive times so you can assemble you're own self-drive trail and make the most of your visit here.   

Plus, if you're a NSW resident, don't forget to use your 'Dine & Discover' vouchers where you can! Apply here for $100 worth of vouchers per eligible adult. It's a great initiative to get everyone exploring our beautiful State and keep our economy moving.
