The surf was churning making for exciting photos. The path is well marked with points of interest along the way.

Great walk with plenty of view points to check out the constant stream of whales going past. Dolphins can be found along here too. Lovely walk with plenty of steps and hills to get the heart rate going.

An easy, nature walk, along the beautiful coast with whales splashing about the ocean and we even saw a koala asleep in a tree.

The coastal walkways in Port Macquarie are well worth the time to explore. Some steep areas so a reasonable fitness needed, but the path goes along the beaches, and through thick cliffside vegetation. Views abound and the path is in good repair. Worth taking the...More

Beaches, Whales, Dolphins, views, stunning views! And it’s free. Water stations along the way, plenty of options to do a short or long walk depending on fitness level. One of Australia’s best kept secrets.

We walked here every day on our recent stay and it was an awesome way to take in the coastal views. The walk is not super hard and can be broken down into smaller chunks if you want to go right through to Tacking Point...More

Spectacular coastline very accessible and constantly changing. I have traveled over half the globe and indeed this is one of the most exciting coastlines to visiy. Walkways are excellent Parking at times can be tight

I walked into town from Flynn's Beach which took me about 30 mins. The gradient would be classed as medium I think as there are some stairs. The rest areas had interesting historical facts.

It starts in the centre of Port Macquarie (Westport near Settlement City) and finishes up at Tacking Point. There are a number of sections so you don't need to do it all at once. It's a good idea to take water with you as... More

It depends on which way you walk. If you walk in to town from Lighthouse Beach there is a bus that goes to the lighthouse area. I'm not sure how often the bus runs though as it is a private bus service and may be infrequent... More
