It's a mix of sealed and unsealed paths, boardwalks, beach sand, rocks, steps and roadways. Signage (which could be better in places) time guides are pretty close for the moderately fit. Walk, other than from initial town start can be steep path or stairs (80...More

A great walk along different beaches and a bit of rain forest. Excellent to walk, a bit up and down, but almost every corner is waiting with a surprise. An absolutely recommendation !

A lovely easy walk. Few stairs! Good for children over ten years old. Stop and sit along the way and enjoy the whale watching!

Every beach in Port Macquarie has something different and beautiful. Harrys Look out is amazing, The Blow hole at nobbys beach (for those who are very fit) This walk is something I used to do everyday as a local

Extremely well maintained walking track with spectacular vistas, rainforest remnants and delightful beach walks. Just over 8k from lighthouse to town green, get a lift out and reward yourself when you get back to the town center. thoroughly recommended

The walk is a mixture of concrete footpaths, timber steps up and over the headlands, sandy beaches and dirt paths. Fine for any age if you are fit or want to get fit. Not accessible for wheelchairs, walking frames, or children’s strollers. Take a water...More

The coastal walk shows off our town at it best. It is a little under 10K and there are parts that could challenge elderly or disabled persons. It is a must do when visiting Port Macquarie.

It starts in the centre of Port Macquarie (Westport near Settlement City) and finishes up at Tacking Point. There are a number of sections so you don't need to do it all at once. It's a good idea to take water with you as... More
