Port Macquarie Museum

Port Macquarie Museum showcases the best of Port Macquarie's history from its British settlement as a penal colony in 1821, through to the present day as a popular tourist resort town.

The award winning museum's significant collection is displayed in 14 rooms and galleries, in a series of themed exhibits. Displays are regularly updated and temporary exhibitions are held from time to time. Guided tours for schools and other groups by appointment. Free audio guide available.

Port Macquarie was one of the earliest convict settlements outside of Sydney. The Museum building and additions are classified by the National Trust of Australia (NSW) as a rare example of a convict built structure circa 1836.
