Things to do this June long weekend

Need some inspiration on what to do this June long weekend in and around Port Macquarie?

We've got some great ideas to keep the young and the young at heart entertained all weekend long!

Wine O'Clock

The long weekend is more fun with wine isn't it?

Stock up your vino collection at Cassegrain's Cellar Door Sale from Friday until Monday.

Take full advantage of sampling the wines at their fab Cellar Door before you buy and take home one-time special deals! Limited stock is available so be quick.

With a superb restaurant also onsite, grab your mates and make a day of it!

Celebrate Our Koalas

There is so much to do this weekend in honour of our koalas!

The Hello Koalas Festival is jam packed with loads of fun from dance parties to high teas, cars and coffee, there is something planned for everyone!

Full schedule details outlined in their flyer below.

To Market to Market

For something a little different, head to the The Foreshore Market (weather permitting) this Saturday at Westport Park from 8am until 1pm.

Here you will find unique handmade arts and crafts with a diverse mix of stalls from gourmet foods, locally grown produce, flowers, clothing (including vintage) and handmade jewellery.

Tap Your Feet

Literally beat those winter blues and head to the Howling Moon Blues Festival this Sunday at the Black Duck Brewery.

Performing acts include Pat Capocci, Papa Pilko And The Binrats, Shaun Kirk, Karl S. Williams - Musical Fool, Claude Hay Band, Ghost Road, Roy Rose, Reggie D, and Josephs Coat.

Olé, Olé, Olé!

The Native Catering Co in North Haven is turning one!! This Sunday night, join them and celebrate their milestone Spanish style with a mouthwatering tapas dinner.

$45.00 per person and BYO - bookings are essential.

Whale Watching

Jump on board with Port Jet Cruise Adventures and witness the magnificent humpback whales at sea!

Each year between May and November the Port Macquarie coastal region is a haven for whale watching.

After a full summer of breeding in Antarctica, approximately 16,000 humpback whales migrate north to sub-tropical waters where they mate and give birth before making their return trip south.



Did you say fried halloumi??? Halloumi and lamb lovers need to head to The Burger Rebellion and try their June special, the Greek Lamburger.

While you're at it, wash it down with craft beer on tap, or a delicious shake. Nom nom nom!


Last Chance to see the Frugal Forest

There's only a few days left to go to see and experience the incredible Frugal Forest installation at Sea Acres Rainforest Centre.

You really won't believe your eyes - this incredible art display is made entirely from salvage. It captures our beautiful natural environment while showcasing the urgent need to reduce our man-made waste, which in most cases goes directly to landfill.

Inspirational and educational, a win for all the family! While you are there, browse the fabulous gift shop at the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre, and enjoy a nice cuppa (or try the Warm Pumpkin Buddha Bowl if you're peckish!) from the Rainforest Cafe onsite.
