A Perfect Weekend in Port Macquarie

Darling koalas, coastal vineyards, ice cream on standby—Port Macquarie has the makings of a perfect weekend away. Here are my must-dos.
Maria Hart, New York City, NY
  • Boogie Woogie Beach House
    Spend at least one night down the coast from Port Macquarie at this wonderfully funky beach house.
  • Breakwall Waking Path
    Stroll along the coast and read the messages here.
  • Billabong Zoo Koala & Wildlife Park
    If you love koalas, you came to the right spot! But lovers of wombats, wallabies, and other critters will be in heaven, too.
  • Blue Cow Gelato
    If you go on a getaway and *don't* eat ice cream, does it even count as a holiday?
  • Innes Lake Vineyards
    Every vacation should have some quality time with a cheese plate and a glass of wine overlooking a vineyard.
  • Koala Hospital
    Calling all koala-lovers! Come here to admire these fuzzy wuzzies, and you can feel good about supporting this hospital that rescues and rehabilitates them.
  • Tacking Point Lighthouse
    A picturesque lighthouse with an incredible viewing platform. If you're lucky, you can do a little whale-spotting!
  • Soul Surfing
    There's no better time to try surfing or pick up some pointers, if you happen to know what you're doing.
  • The Mid Pacific
    A solid hotel in a central location, the Mid Pacific has everything you need, including bikes to pedal around town.
  • Bel-Air Pizza
    Pizza is a must, especially after you've worked up an appetite on a coastal walk or doing water sports.
