Birpai people have lived in the region for thousands of years, surviving through European settlement, cultural change and introduced disease to defend their connection to the land. Today, the lush valleys, mountains, beaches and waterways are enjoyed by visitors who return to Greater Port Macquarie year on year for the warm weather, natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle. Greater Port Macquarie Tourism acknowledges the close connection between Aboriginal people and the land and works with the Birpai Local Aboriginal people to promote the natural landscape and their heritage. The Birpai welcome you to their country.
