Experience an Amazing Vacation in Port Macquarie with These Helpful Tips

The area of Port Macquarie is quite charming and rarely crowded, which is why it should be at the top of everyone’s list of places to visit. The local beaches are very close to town and the entire area is quite touristy, despite the lack of major crowds. While there are a few things to do in Port Macquarie, most people choose to visit for the tranquil experiences they can have down by the water.

How to Get to Port Macquarie

Port Macquarie is conveniently located between Brisbane and Sydney. You can choose to fly into the Port Macquarie Airport, which is only five kilometers to the west of the town. There are daily flights from both Brisbane and Sydney. If you are flying from other parts of the country, you will need to fly to one of those two cities and then catch a connecting flight.

It is also possible to drive from one of those two cities to Port Macquarie or you can take a bus. Both options will have you traveling along the Pacific Highway until you reach Oxley Highway.

Port Macquarie Holiday Accommodation Options

There are many different holiday accommodation options available in Port Macquarie. You can choose from hostels, hotels, bed and breakfasts, apartments, and even villas. You will even find a few vacation homes to choose from for your stay. While you can reserve any of these wonderful options, it is always best to choose a location that gives you gorgeous views of the ocean and beach.

Best Time of the Year to Visit Port Macquarie

The winters are mild, and the summers are warm, so many people are unsure of when the best time to visit Port Macquarie really is. However, the best time of the year to visit Port Macquarie is during the summer months. December through February are the liveliest months in this town, thanks to the numerous festivals, fairs, and other popular events. It is quite crowded at this time of the year, but dealing with lots of people is worth it for the experiences you will have.

Things to See and Do in and Around Port Macquarie

Everyone who has been interested in surfing must give it a try when they arrive in Port Macquarie. The waves are pretty consistent at the beaches, making it the perfect place to test out your skills. You can even take surf lessons if you need a little help getting up on your board.

If you are not a fan of the water, you can always take a hike through the rainforests or Werrikimbe National Park. The Kattang Nature Reserve is another excellent option if you need something quick and easy one day.

During your visit to Port Macquarie, you must make sure you have a few of the local wineries on your list of things to do. There are quite a few wineries to choose from, but Douglas Vale Historic Homestead and Vineyard, Cassegrain Wines, and Little Fish Café and Vineyard should be at the top of your list. Those people who do not love wine will be thrilled to know that the Black Duck Brewery is open for sampling craft beer.

Other adventures you can have in Port Macquarie include riding in a helicopter, cruising along the river in a boat, and going horseback riding. Make sure you have your camera with you for all those adventures, because you never know what you will see up close and from a distance.

Best Places to Eat and Drink in Port Macquarie

While you can choose to eat and drink anywhere in Port Macquarie, you might as well do it down by the water. This will allow you to see extraordinary views, as you are eating some of the best foods. Your long morning beach walks can begin or end with a stop at the Salty Crew Kiosk. You will love their smoothies, but don’t forget to grab an acai bowl on occasion to prevent hunger from setting in.

The Boathouse of Sails is the perfect place if you love to eat seafood. As good as their seafood is though, you won’t be able to resist sinking your teeth into their black angus eye fillet or their basil roasted eggplant. At the end of your meal, have a little liquor added to your coffee, because it will get your night started just right.

Over at Zebu, you will be so close to the water, you will feel as if you are almost in it. The prime beef tartare is a new favorite amongst many, but the blue swimmer crab tortellini is a close second.

These helpful tips will have you experiencing an amazing vacation in Port Macquarie. You can easily reserve your accommodations, create your itinerary, and indulge in some fabulous food without spending hours planning your time in this phenomenal town in Australia.
