Port Macquarie is located on the New South Wales North Coast, and the remarkably untouched waters of the coast, inlets, and rivers are one of the main attractions to the area. Stay in our Port Macquarie accommodation
and explore the natural surrounds of not only the beautiful waterways, but also the rolling hills covered in forestry. See a selection of Diamond Beach accommodation
Lighthouse Beach accommodation
or Emerald Beach accommodation
for a beachside getaway.
There are nine main beaches so you are guaranteed easy access to the water during a stay in our Port Macquarie hotels
. The most popular of Port Macquarie’s beaches are Town, Flynn’s and Lighthouse, which are all patrolled and manned by Surf Life Saving Clubs. This beachside location has fostered a laidback surfing lifestyle that can be felt throughout the town.
There are plenty of other ways to experience the water while staying in a Port Macquarie hotel, with a number of companies and operators offering different watercrafts for hire. Take a boat down the Hastings River for a leisurely cruise or a spot of fishing; try your hand at windsurfing in Regatta Grounds or Trial Bay, or let someone else look after you and take one of the many day cruises and head out on the water and catch a glimpse of some dolphins and other aquatic wildlife.
Some other wildlife you might want to check out is back on land. From your Port Macquarie accommodation visit the Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park, world renowned for its koala breeding program, the park lets you get up close to the animals and touch and feed endangered Australian wildlife including the rare Albino Kangaroo.
