This hugely popular music festival is returning to Port Macquarie for another year, with Hunter and Collectors headlining supported by James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera. On the green at waterside Westport Park, this event usually sells out, so you’d better get in quick and organise your weekend in Port Macquarie!

Be bold and try something new this summer at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery! Inspired by current exhibitions, this is one for the kids as your little artist will create and take home their very own original piece of art.

Day trip (or several!) to the beach
The ultimate trip for some fun in the sun. We recommend Lighthouse Beach for the surfers who love a big swell or for those who want a more calm and family oriented spot, Shelly Beach is the ideal place for a relaxing getaway. Splash around in the ocean when you want a little break from the rays and enjoy a day in the sun.
