Coastal walk, Port Macquarie
(5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.
