Located on the New South Wales Holiday Coast at the mouth of the Hastings River, Port Macquarie boasts some of the most pristine waterways and magnificent beaches in Australia. With an abundance of things to do, beautiful nature reserves, and a colourful history, Port Macquarie is a coastal resort town that has something for everyone. The climate is noted for being one of the best in Australia with average temperatures ranging from 20C - 32C in Summer, and from 8C - 21C in Winter. Port Macquarie (31º 26' 00" S - 152º 55' 00" E) is 420kms north of Sydney and 500kms south of Brisbane. Being half-way between Sydney and the Gold Coast makes the resort town an ideal stop off if your touring up to Byron Bay or south east Queensland. There are regular flights to and from Port Macquarie's domestic airport, train services at the nearby town of Wauchope and frequent inter-city coach services stopping in the centre of town. The city itself boasts some fine architecture (St Thomas Church-1828) with a mix of modern highrise.Port Macquarie's 9 storey height limitation ensures that the future cityscape remains dominated by the Norfolk Island Pines and retains its coastal resort charm.
