Port Macquarie - Cities, Towns and Localities
Only a four hour drive and 400 km north of Sydney, Port Macquarie is situated at the mouth of the Hastings River, mid way between Sydney and Brisbane on the North Coast of NSW.

There is much to enjoy in the region with magnificent beaches, coastal lakes and waterways, beautiful nature reserves, historical interests, fantastic recreational activities, fine dining and first class entertainment. Make Port Macquarie your base and check out some of the tours and adventure activities in the region.

Originally a settlement for convicts banished for crimes committed in NSW, much of it’s early heritage has gone, with St Thomas’ Church, constructed in 1824 entirely by convicts, being one of the few reminder of those early days.

Check out the Hastings District Historical Museum for information on the history of the town. The Sea Acres Rainforest Centre is a coastal rainforest community, being the larges and most diverse in the region and it offers a nature display with a boardwalk through the rainforest.

Port Macquarie also has a Koala Hospital and Study Center ‘Roto House’, where visitors can join the ‘Feed, Walk and Talk Tour’ to learn about what they do, the volunteers involved and the efforts to raise funds through the  ‘Adopt a Koala’ program.

• The Sea Acres coastal rainforest community is the largest and most diverse in the region. The forest runs right down to the beach, so you can enjoy the stillness and beauty or the roar of the surf. Sea Acres was dedicated as a nature reserve in 1987, and was the first coastal landscape to attract a Heritage Listing for the ‘preservation of an area containing an outstanding remnant of coastal rainforest’.

The rainforest centre offers boardwalk tours, a lecture theatre, ecology display, and a shop which sells a range of books, posters, clothing and gifts. There is an entry fee to the boardwalk and display. The Rainforest Cafe offers a pleasant leafy venue for relaxed dining.
