We did the coastal walks from Town Beach to the Lighthouse (not all in one day) The views were spectacular. The walk was on paths, tracks, boardwalks and beaches - each was well maintained. I think it was one of the best coastal walks we have done.

The coastal views were beautiful, however, a bit up and down but the drive around the coast was beautiful, all that I have heard about the area and more,.

There are so many different coastal walks with varied ocean views you will never tire of the view. Don't miss Sea Acres Nature Reserve, one of the best littoral rainforests in NSW.

This walk is great first thing in the morning to get you going for the rest of the day. It takes you alongside of the river, ocean and beaches with some lovely views out to the sea and also over Port Macquarie.

Good pathway with great views. Some exercise stations dotted along the walkway. Well lit and safe. Reasonable level of fitness needed.

We spent the better part of three hours walking only a small portion of the Port Maquarie Coastal Walk. Views are amazing, and even breathtaking. A chance to see a few whales in the distance and plenty of benches for a sit, for a rest or to simply soak in the beauty of the coast.

loved the painted rocks along the ocean, the coast at the time we were there was a bit dirty but that was expected after the massive storms

A great way to see more of Port Macquarie, possibly experience some local wildlife, see whales breaching along the coast and exercise - all at the same time!

We have walked the Port Macquarie Coastal Walk in sections. There's no hurry. Some bits are easier than others but all are possible for casual walkers. It is so beautiful, including walking on beaches and headlands. Whales in season, seen from many points.

Loved this walk - mostly easy with bits of ups and downs and stairs but plenty of places to stop and admire the views which are fabulous. Nice cool breeze on a hot day.
