Wonderful walk with beautiful landscapes for the average walker. It took us few hours for the entire trip. Bring your swimmer for hot days as their are plenty of beaches along the way.

Very relaxing and stunningly beautiful and good for a run or a walk. Interesting art work as personnel have painted personal messages on the rocks adjacent the walk. Take a camera.

Relaxing and easy - great for all ages. Take a hat and a drink and just enjoy the natural beauty :) Nothing to dislike.

Port Macquarie is a town that uses its river and coast to best advantage. An example of this is the coastal walk, which I try to do each time I visit the town.

The Port Macquarie Coastal Walk has so much diversity underfoot and around you it should please everyone, let alone the stunning views from riverside shores, near & distant beaches, headlands and lookouts, rocky islands and outcrops and formations carved by the sea. There are smooth pathway sections for those with mobility issues or if you're out the other side you... More

Great walk. Lovely views. If you get to the end you'll see the lighthouse. Take your togs...or don't.

Coastal walk is excellent plenty to see along the way. Rocks were unusual with people's personnel writings on and most were very touching to read.

This walk is very peaceful & you don't know what you might see koalas,dolphins, birds etc. I really like that it can be a short or long walk up to you.
