We only did the last leg of the walk from Shelly Beach carpark to the Lighthouse. The walk was really beautiful, great spots for photos, some great lookout spots. Walk was quite exhausting, but well worth it. Watch out for nude bathers, walking along Miners beach.

What a great walk. You can start either at the lighthouse or town beach and take the path for as long as you want. My usual is a loop that takes in the Lighthouse, Miners Beach (watch out for bare bums during warmer weather - it's the unofficial nude beach), and down to Shelly's Beach and back. The path is...

Make sure to get up on the highest point to get great views. It is very romantic and it has a bohemian feel with caravans and VW vans parked up. Rain or shine- Port Macquarie is picturesque! This is a must do in here whether you surf or not. Make sure to also see the Koala statues further down.

This is a wonderful walk along the headlands of Port Macquarie. Jog it, or take your time to take in the sights - look out for whales during whale migration season.
