Definitely worth visiting the museum. Lots of historical information about the people and the area, extensive collection of artefacts and photos, from convict times through to the 60s. Includes a list of convicts’ names.
Time passed very quickly!
Highly recommended.

We had a very enjoyable visit and saw lots of interesting artefacts. We also found out a lot about the area of Port Macquarie.

A hidden surprise in the heart of town. After walking past for years it was fun to explore this old building. Some displays need a bit of TLC but in general a good place to visit. The dress up area was fun for the little ones. Worth a visit, only takes about an hour.

Lovely place run by volunteers showing us around what was once a family home and business. Such a lot to take in and learn about. Also koalas here as part of the Koala Trail. I particularly liked the clock as you walk in the door, it no longer works but is so quirky and interesting. Well worth a visit
