North Coast

Port Macquarie is a thriving coastal town, with national parks, surf beaches and heritage areas on its doorstep. The town still has reminders of its convict heritage and you can while away your days here retracing the history of the region, wildlife spotting, enjoying the seafood specialties from the Hastings River or appreciating the local arts scene.


Just 2.5 hours up the coast from Sydney, Nelson Bay, with its salt air and soft sea breezes is a blue water paradise. Deep sea fishing, sea kayaking sailing, surfing, scuba-diving, dolphin spotting and whale watching are just some of the options for holidaymakers in this laid back village nestled on the shores of Port Stephens.
