Greater Port Macquarie : Holiday Planner
timbertown Pioneer history comes to life at Timbertown in Wauchope, a working recreation of a 19th century timber getting village complete with steam train, Cobb & Co coach rides, Clydesdale horses and bullock team. pat a koala You can get close enough to pat a koala at Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park near Wauchope, as well as kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and lots of other Australian wildlife. climb the walls The Centre of Gravity Indoor Adventure Centre is awesome fun for all ages. There are 60 indoor climbs to try, plus caves, ladders, high ropes and the Dark Zone laser skirmish. putt putt golf Putt your way around 27 holes of fun and frivolity at the Hydro Golf and Putt Putt Centre. Try and hit the floating targets and you could take home some great prizes. camel safari Take a camel safari – just 10 minutes from Port Macquarie at Lighthouse Beach. Rides are usually 20 minutes - but the memories will last much longer. go karts Hire a cart and feel the thrill of driving on an actual race circuit, one of the country’s fastest, but safest tracks. The whole family can join in the fun from eight years old and upwards and helmets and racing suits are part of the deal. paintball Experience the action and fun of paintball with a group of friends or alternatively, join a team and work your way through the many game scenarios to ultimately become the winner. Afterwards enjoy a cold beverage and BBQ with your team mates. boutique shopping No holiday’s complete without a bit of shopping and Greater Port Macquarie’s got some great places to get your fix. The main shopping streets in Port Macquarie’s city centre are Horton and Clarence streets, and they are both lined with fashion boutiques, popular chain stores, quirky home wares, decorator and gift shops and some great places to pick up a locally-made memento of your holiday. port central & settlement city Open every day, Port Central and Settlement City shopping centres offer a fantastic shopping experience with a range of local and national fashion retailers and the chance to stock up on fresh fruit and veg if you’re self-catering. Both centres have large food courts and free undercover parking. country treats Spend some time wandering through the eclectic mix of shops in Wauchope and the Camden Haven, which range from good old-fashioned country department stores which sell everything including the kitchen sink, to boutiques, art and craft galleries, pottery and books, then recharge with a coffee in one of the many cafes. portmacquarieinfo.com.au 13
