Events in Port Macquarie

The Port Macquarie region stretches from the north of Port Macquarie to Telegraph Point, south to Laurieton and Camden Haven, west to the Comboyne Plateau, and includes the rural heart of the region, Wauchope. With one of Australia’s best temperature climates, the region is abundant with national parks, surf beaches and coastal towns to explore, while heritage attractions are poignant reminders of its beginnings as a penal settlement in the 1820s.
