North Haven

From swimming and surfing to fishing and boating, North Haven is a delightful holiday destination in the Greater Port Macquarie region on the NSW North Coast. You’ll be delighted with the beautiful waterways, including Camden Haven River and Queens Lake.

Just a short drive east of Laurieton and 30 minutes south of Port Macquarie, North Haven has plenty of accommodation options, such as waterfront motels, apartments and holiday parks. You’ll find a delicious choice of riverside cafes and restaurants, too.

Queens Lake Nature Reserve - Port Macquarie Area

Water sports are top of the adventure list. Grants Beach is popular with surfers, with a southern breakwall creating great right-handers in southerly swells. For kayaking and sailing, try the calm waters of Queens Lake. Queens Lake Nature Reserve is a haven for koalas and other wildlife.

Fishing is popular at any time of the year in the waterways, with estuarine species such as bream, flathead and luderick. For exhilarating walks, the Grants Beach Coastal Walk begins at the mouth of the river and will take you through an area of littoral rainforest. The nearby Diamond Head loop walk in Crowdy Bay National Park and the Rainforest loop in Dooragan National Park are also popular trails.
