Great walk through the rainforest
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We had a great walk through the rainforest. Easy stroll along the elevated boardwalk. Very well designed and maintained. Informative signs along the walk. Only spotted a Goanna and some birds. Great gift shop with very helpful staff.

Peaceful and unique
Nov. 2021 • Business
Highly recommend a stroll through this natural rainforest to take in the well kept surrounds of Port Macquarie. Plenty of information provided along the walk sign-posted, so you can enjoy the serendipity this spot allows.
Some gorgeous photo opps along through the path too.
Only a short easy drive from the town centre too- and if not having a coffee whole experience done in 1 hour.

Bush Tucker Tour was awesome
Jul. 2021
My partner and I recently visited Sea Acres and rather than doing a self-guided walk of the boardwalk, we joined a Bush Tucker Tour. Nardja was our guide and she provided a fantastic presentation including her indigenous culture, what Sea Acres meant and provided for the Birpai people and she was a really good story teller, in that our attentions were held captive in the 1.5hours plus that she escorted us around the rainforest. I think this kind of knowledge is so powerful to share, as so many of us have no idea of the cleverness of our indigenous peoples and I walked away in awe.
Do yourself a favour and join a tour, we booked online for $18 pp and I think the tour runs every week. The cost of doing the self-guided walk is $9 pp, so in my opinion, you are crazy not to pay the little extra to do Nardja's tour and learn as well as enjoy.

Beautiful and peaceful
May 2021
Due to COVID we couldn't get a toured walk, but had to make do with enjoying the walk on our own. I remember taking my own kids to Sea Acres around 20 years ago and was happy it was still in operation all these years later. The boardwalk takes you through an easy stroll of 1.3km of rainforest. Wheelchair friendly. $7 entry for pensioners and you can take as long as you like to do the walk. The souvenir shop also has great gift ideas at reasonable prices. An iconic place in Port Macquarie and I would highly recommend a visit.

A Walk Through The Rain Forest
May 2021
The board walk through the rain forest was good with well signed trees and flora however the walk was under repair and not a complete circuit but still worth while at half the price.

Peaceful and interesting rainforest walk
May 2021 • Friends
An easy walk through and above the rainforest canopy. While we didn’t spot any animal life except for some brush turkeys, the walk was cool and pleasant with plenty of informative signage along the way.
The cafe is nice though not cheap. The gift shop is well appointed.
Cost of the walk was $9/ adult or $7 concession. Some people have complained of the cost. It is not very expensive and surely the cost of wages and upkeep justify the small entrance fee.
Certainly worth a visit.

Break on a rainy day
Feb. 2021
There is almost a kilometer of very carefully constructed boardwalk well above the rainforest floor so you have a great view of the trees and plants plus insects and the odd lizard probably trying to eat them. Highly recommended.
