Port Macquarie Holidays Overview

 

Port Macquarie is a coastal town lying at the mouth of the Hastings River, about 420km north of Sydney, and 500 km south of Brisbane.
 
Port Macquarie has had a mixed history since being noted by Captain Cook in 1770. In 1821 a penal settlement was established with 60 convicts clearing land, building the settlement, and establishing farms. A sugar mill was built in 1824. Free settlers started arriving in 1830 and the final convicts were relocated in 1847. In the 1860's farmers began to arrive. In the 1960's the town was discovered as a tourist destination and has remained popular with holiday makers ever since.
 
Visitors to Port Macquarie have plenty of options to select from. The early historic convict buildings can be explored. Lovers of water sports are well catered for with the both a river and the beach. Fishing, including river, beach and deep sea, swimming, surfing, wind surfing, parasailing, jet skiing, and river cruising are just some of the water activities available. National parks, golf, and camel rides are other outdoor pursuits.
