Port by Night Tours is Port Macquarie's only night walking tour. Starting at the beautiful Town Green where Port Macquarie was founded. Your host, Bruce Thompson, will guide you through the brutal penal colony that became a modern day tourist Mecca.
Visit historic sites and see images of the past appear before your eyes. Who were the original inhabitants of this land? What bizarre punishments did convicts receive? Who is buried under St Thomas church? What connection did the first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton, have with Port Macquarie? What strange practices did undertakers engage in during the early times? How did common but mysterious sayings used everyday language originate? These questions and more will be answered as you tour Port Macquarie before visiting the dead at the Historic Burying Ground under the cover of darkness.
Port By Night Tours operates between October to March.
