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.

  • For a small observatory this is a gem, the 30-40min presentation delivered great practical articulation of knowledge, the chance to hold a piece of meteorite and was thought provoking, view of the half moon and then an excellent view of Saturn was outstanding. For $10 each it was a fabulous investment - we left wowed!!
  • nice speech, had a good time
  • great place...i lke it
  • It is well worthwhile doing a tour of the Observatory at Rotary Park as it gives you a true appreciation of the size of this galaxy!
  • very nice old building
