One day you might find yourself sitting with a group of friends enjoying a cuppa and hearing from a local author, you might find yourself taking part in workshops like Food Smart Tips and Tricks or you might find yourself enjoying a leisurely stroll along the Port Poetry Walk – an experience and literary journey unlike others.
In visiting this library, it really can be a full day outing whether that’s on your own, with your village friends or as a trip with the grandkids. There is always something planned and something for you to enjoy.
Location: William Street, Port Macquarie
Our residents are absolutely spoiled being just 1.7km from this stunning beach. The 600 metre long beach curves between the southern river entrance wall and a jagged 15 metre high headland, capped by the pilots’ flagstaff.
With this picturesque beach so close, why not pop your umbrella up in a nice little possie on the patrolled beach and enjoy a swim, basking in the rays or sitting back with a good book. There are open grassed spaces, picnic facilities and a local kiosk serving up delicious food and coffee with a side order of sea breeze too! Walk off lunch with the grandchildren in the nearby playground topped off with a stroll along the picturesque Town Beach break wall with its colourful graffiti rocks too.
However your ideal day goes, the beach is calling with sand between your toes, refreshing ocean water and sunshine for your soul.
