Coastal walk, Port Macquarie

4.9
#1 of 22 in Outdoors in Port Macquarie
Coastal walk is a long scenic walk through various types of scenery, including clifftops, beaches, and rainforest. The walk can be as demanding or as easy as you desire, depending upon which section or length you choose. Changing with the seasons and times of day, the walk is especially popular at sunset, when locals and visitors rush to the clifftops to see the play of color and light against the landscape and the sea. As you walk, keep an eye out for wildlife on the land and in the sea. You might see dolphins frolicking in the water. Pack a picnic or stop by one of the restaurants by the harbor.

Where to stay in Port Macquarie

As a well-established holiday destination, Port Macquarie offers a good number of places to stay. Most accommodations cluster in the town's scenic areas--at the mouth of the Hastings River and along the coast, as well as close to the beaches. While the town does feature several larger hotels, rental apartments and guesthouses outnumber them by far. If you're looking to stay outside town and closer to the lush surrounding countryside, you can choose anything from luxurious cabins to campgrounds.
