Finally visited this place. The boardwalk is great and so much to see. Very cheap prices on gifts and the morning tea amazing. Cant beat the macadamia and coconut touted bread. Yum!

The walks around Port Macquarie are stunning. In the early morning and at sunset the tranquillity was impressive. There is many surprises with both river and ocean views.

We walked along the lovely stretch of Lighthouse beach. Fantastic walk with beautiful views all the way. Locals say you often see dolphins plying in the surf although we missed out on this occasion. None the less it was very pleasant.

It runs beside the pounding surf, is a little uphill to stretch the cardi and has some good stops for chin-ups etc. You can do it as strong or as leisurely as you want
