A very pleasant water side walk with rocks painted in many different ways, all with different messages poignant, funny, celebratory or sad. It really adds to what is already and interesting walk. Don’t miss it if youre in Port Macquarie.

Its not a visit to Port Macquarie until you enjoy a walk on The Breakwall. Take time to enjoy not only the beautiful views but also the painted rocks and of course the odd dolphin

No Eimee, not at all-it's free to go on to and stay as long as you want or amble along at your leisure and read all the painted rocks.
