The festival showcases Australia's most outstanding music, composers, ensembles and performers in a week-long event. AquaSculpture is a biennial event that provides opportunities to local and visiting artists to unite audiences in themed topical awareness or conservation through art, music and theatre. The annual Festival of the Sun sees thousands descend upon Port Macquarie for a weekend of music mixing indie, hip- hop, blues, roots and rock. The festival takes place inside Sundowner Caravan Park, arguably located in the best position in town, opposite Town Beach and facing the Hastings River. The festive vibe is casual, laidback and unlike any other festival around. The annual 'Tastings of the Hastings' is a colourful gathering of quality produce displays from market gardeners and horticulturists. Eye-catching stalls offer a feast for the tastebuds of delicious cheeses, nuts, olives, preserves and breads from boutique kitchens and the farm gate. Restaurateurs showcase specially-priced tasting menus that will see you match oysters, fragrant laksas or any of the dozens of dishes with beautiful local wines. There's also music and entertainment to add to a banquet for the senses. Greater Port Macquarie is host to national and international sporting events throughout the year.
