Town Beach And Cbd

The heart of Port Macquarie includes the picturesque Town Beach and bustling Central Business District. The area boasts major shopping centres, speciality stores, and a wide variety of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. There is always something to do or see, with the Glasshouse and regional gallery hosting world-class productions, and a vibrant regional community events calendar.

A colourful breakwall with iconic painted rocks links the CBD via the Town Green and Lady Nelson Wharf to Town Beach. This is an established residential area with a number of schools, parks and reserves.

The area has a rich history, dating back to 1821 when Port Macquarie was founded as a penal settlement. The town became a major holiday resort area in the 60s and 70s, and remains a popular destination for both holidaymakers and sea-changers looking to live the  lifestyle year round.
