Macksville

Macksville is a popular destination for fishing and boating. Next to the meandering Nambucca River, the town is on the mid North Coast of NSW. In the Coffs Harbour region, the town is a good place to take a break on your road journey with an overnight stop.

The Nambucca River Tourist Park is on the banks of the gorgeous river and has caravan and camping sites as well as self-contained cabins. You can practise your golf swing at the Nambucca River Golf Driving Range, open seven days. A short drive west from Macksville is The Pub With No Beer, at Taylors Arm, the pub made famous by country music singer Slim Dusty's hit song with the same name, 'A Pub With No Beer'.

For vivid insights into pioneering life, visit the Mary Boulton Pioneer Cottage and Museum in Macksville. You can also learn about Aboriginal heritage with Unkya Local Aboriginal land Council Eco Tours, which offers a beach and bush walking tour of enchanting Gaagal Wanggaan National Park.

The Nambucca River Festival is held in November and Macksville's River Street is transformed into a vibrant entertainment precinct, where you can taste locally produced wine and food. The river showcases water sports and is a gallery of light-sculpture lanterns at night.
