Nature in Macksville
Macksville is a riverside town with beautiful country surrounds. The town borders Nambucca River, a haven for water activities including fishing, canoeing and waterskiing. Relax by the Lily Pond in Rotary Park and admire the area's unique birdlife.
Macksville, on the Coffs Harbour North Coast, lies around the broad Nambucca - a main attraction, offering a range of fishing and boating options. Located on the Pacific Highway approximately midway between Sydney and Brisbane, this is a good place to break the road journey with an overnight stop. Be sure to have a drink at the Pub With No Beer. This pub, 26 km west of Macksville at Taylors Arm, became famous in Slim Dusty's hit song 'A Pub With No Beer'. Don't miss visiting Mary Boulton's Pioneer Cottage, a replica of a settler's home that brings the pioneering history of the district vividly to life.
