Good visit, learnt so much about the history of Port Macquarie, with many rooms packed with information and historical artefacts. Helpful friendly staff behind the counter. Recommend it if you are in the area. $7 entry fee for adult.

Stepping in to the museum was like stepping back in time. Looking at how things used to be and how it looked. Port Macquarie used to be quite small compared to how we see it now. The museum was an eye opener. So much history....More
