The beautiful coastal town of Port Macquarie is known for its beaches and wildlife. If you’re stopping here then make sure you visit Lighthouse Beach, Sea Acres National Park and one of the many classic Aussie cafes for a great flat white.
There are lots of great campsites here with full facilities, which make this the perfect place to park up and stay put for a few nights.
When you leave Port Macquarie then we recommend that you take the scenic route to Port Stephens by turning off the highway and driving along the coast, passing some stunning spots such as Myall Lakes National Park, Blueys and Boomerang Beaches.
