This is a great spot. Lots to see from a long stretch of beach to rocks popping up out of the water. The beaches have hardly any people on them. We saw a pod of dolphins while looking around, that was amazing.

An amazing little place to go for some amazing photos... breathtaking views across beaches and ocean. Parking could be challenging if it was really busy there... but well worth a visit as a must do in Port Macquarie.

Head on out to the lighthouse and check out the amazing views, great for whale watching, limited parking available but you can still do a drive through seating available to take in the beautiful vista

Nothing here other than the lighthouse and a great view. It's well worth a look if you're nearby and have a few minute to kill.

A lovely place to sit down at and enjoy the panoramic view. The parking and access to a good view are both very easy.

We stopped at the Lighthouse right before hitting the road and leaving Port Mac, and we were glad we did so. It sits on top of a hill, accessible by car, and the view is something else. Can't get over the beauty of the Australian...More

Great view down the coast but just too windy to stay for any time. Would be great on a calmer day I suspect.
