Saying it’s an attractive place for caravanners isn’t exactly accurate, there are all sorts of visitors to Port Macquarie, and not limited to a traveller type. Due to the immense variation of activities and sights, this place is packed with tourists during the summer months.
If you’re planning a Port Macquarie caravanning adventure, make sure you’re booking ahead of time, and considering what you might focus on. Weather is mild all year long, so choosing a time to visit shouldn’t be an issue. However, if you’re looking to make the most of the beaches within Port Macquarie (which you should), then maybe summer is the ideal time.
Port Macquarie is approximately half way between Sydney and Brisbane, the perfect holiday escape from either of the main cities. Or if you’re travelling from Melbourne, it’s about a 12-hour drive up the Hume and onward.
While the place is a coastal township with beaches a plenty, there are more than just water activities available in this tourist hub. Since we’re already referencing the ocean, there are some great spots to swim and frolic.
