“Very pretty spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Amazing views along the coastline but very limited parking so you need to pick your times. We missed seeing any whales from here on our trip, too early in the season. Take a few minutes to admire the scenery and chill out.

A lovely and peaceful place to take in the ocean views at Port Macquarie.

“Just spectacular views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

A must to see if you're in Port Macquarie. The best views up and down the coast, and if you're there at the right time of year, you'll probably see a whale or two. We did! Just spectacular.

“Views forever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

This is glorious piece of Australian history with some of the most stunning views anywhere on our east coast. We were lucky enough to visit on a near perfect day of weather with a calm blue sea playing host to six pods of playful whales putting on a brilliant display of whale antics. Add this location to your visit list when in Port.
