Port Macquarie is a beautiful coastal city in New South Wales that is home to stunning beaches, rain forest and national parks that is easily accessible by car or plane. You could easily just spend your days walking along miles of beaches and swimming in the sea, but if you like your holiday to include some fun activities, there are plenty of fun things to do.
GO FOR A RIDE – Depending on the pace you prefer why not try a camel ride along the beach, a horseback ride in the surrounding hills or if you like things super fast you must try Wave Rider. This unique boat will have you cruising around the picturesque waters at 100km per hour for a whale watching tour with a difference.
