Holidaying in Northern NSW: Part 4

After our huge day on the Central Coast of NSW, day 4 of our holiday involved exploring most of the beaches of Port Macquarie. The first 2 beaches are Town Beach & Oxley's Beach, which I didn't photograph.

The next beach south is Rocky Beach, which isn't the best for surfing or swimming due to it's abundance of rocks as the name suggests.

Flynn's Beach is the most popular beach at Port Macquarie with barbecue facilities, good surf and the surf club which patrols the beach.


The southern end of Flynn's Beach is quite rocky

Walking over the headland, you come to Nobby's Beach. Not the best for swimming due to the rocks but great to walk along. It is also popular with dog walkers. The high headland in the distance is Nobby's Head.

Nobby's Head provides some excellent views south...


My husband Michael made good use of his new binoculars. We saw a few whales far out to sea.

Continuing south, we walked along "The Kenny Walk" which winds along the rocky cliffs.

This rocky cove doesn't seem to have a name...

There were quite a number of Banksia trees along the Kenny Walk

Looking south across Shelley Beach, which provides some well protected swimming.

The top section of The Kenny Walk before the path leads down to Shelley Beach.

After this walk, we drove further south beyond Tacking Point to the expanse of Lighthouse Beach

Looking north, you can see Tacking Point Lighthouse on the headland in the distance. More on the lighthouse in my next post.

a lovely series Liz; they look so refreshing after my 'inland' dry ones that I've been working with. That's what I love about our country - the contrasts make it so interesting. Glad you enjoyed your holiday south.

I can see why you would want to get these completed - very nice pictures.

I can also see (again) why its a good place to go on holiday!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

My knowledge of NSW is certainly increasing. Despite living part of the time only 4 hours or so from Sydney I've never been to NSW. I'm getting more and more tempted to remedy that.
