Port Macquarie Coastal Walk

Take in the unique location of Sea Acres National Park along the coastal walk; the south end of the walk is one of the few places on the east coast where the forest meets the foam.

You can start the walk at Town Beach, winding along the coast via Flagstaff, Rocky Beach lookout, Nobby’s Beach and Harry's lookout to Sea Acres. You’ll see several historical sites along the way and enjoy stunning seaside scenery that surrounds Port Macquarie. Between May and November, you might spot a whale or two on their annual migration; don't forget to record your sighting.

The walk ends at Tacking Point lighthouse; however you can break it up into shorter sections if you feel like a short walk or are walking with kids. There are opportunities for barbecues and swimming along the way, including at Shelley Beach and a beachside café at Flynn’s Beach that serves up gourmet burgers.

You could also start the walk at Tacking Point; finishing up at the Royal Hotel in Port Macquarie.
