With our network of rivers and canals, lakes and, of course, the ocean, this is a water lovers’ paradise.
The Greater Port Macquarie Region has thirteen beaches, many of which are patrolled during the swimming season - including the delightful Flynn’s Beach, a popular family beach flanked by tall pines. If it’s seclusion you’re looking for, you can’t beat the five pristine kilometres at Rainbow Beach, in Bonny Hills.
Surfing, water skiing, sailing, sailboarding, deep sea fishing, dolphin and whale watching, scuba diving... every conceivable water sport is waiting for you and you can hire all the equipment you need. There are so many ways to enjoy our waterways, too: rent a small motor boat, set off on a barbecue cruise or vintage boat, enjoy a river cruise or an everglades tour.
Then there’s the simple pleasure of sitting on a riverbank or breakwater with a fishing rod. And the fish are jumping! Bream, blackfish, tailor, whiting, flathead... if you like fishing, you’ll be hooked.
