Retiring in Port Macquarie?

Port Macquarie is a brilliant place to retire and offers the best of coastal living in New South Wales, why not consider the stunning North Coast? Below are some of our favourite local coastal activities.

Fishing in Port Macquarie

Port Macquarie is literally awash with fish, which is evident by the number and health of the local dolphin community! The excitement of the kids when they catch a fish makes it well worth the effort of finding a comfy spot and sharing some knowledge. At the end of Clarence Street is the Fishermen’s Coop wharf where you can actually see the fish you are chasing. Use a simple hand line with a small hook and no sinker, baited with bread, dough or prawn for the very best results and fish from about an hour before to an hour after high tide.

On The Water

Take to the river, beaches, boating, canoeing, or surfing. Ever tried scuba diving? Be a part of the fishing charter crew, join Port’s most experienced whale watchers or go dolphin spotting on a water bus.

Try jet skis, water skiing, a high-speed Special Forces boat, barbecue boat or a lunch cruise; or just hire a boat, canoe or barbecue barge and do your own thing…

For Adventure Seekers

Take to the air… See Port Macquarie from the air on a helicopter tour or in a historic Tiger Moth during a scenic flight.  How about a thrilling landing on the river in a seaplane?

For Nature Lovers

Lose yourself in the tranquillity of a two-hour walk on a boardwalk among the treetops at the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre. Or join a dolphin watching cruise.
