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.
