the walk goes from port township to the light house., along the way there are great advantage points where you can see far out to sea. we saw dolphins, whales & lots of ocean birds. the path is dog friendly so it is good exercise...More
Wow! what a fabulous Coastal Walk, we started at Tacking Point walking through stunning rainforest onto secluded beaches, stairs back into rainforests with stunning coastal views. A leisurely 3 hour hike with plenty of refreshment stops along the way!
Miners Beach was the highlight.
At first we saw several different rocks. Then we saw the beautiful beach.
There were many rocks in the ocean. Waves hit the rocks and the ocean went high up in the air. It was better than television!

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 it can be a thirsty walk depending on the weather.
The walk can be divided into four sections:
Westport to Town Beach (2km)
Town Beach to Flynns Beach (2.2km)
Flynns Beach to Shelly Beach (2.2km)
Shelly Beach to Tacking Point (2.7km)
You can also start the walk at Town Beach near the Breakwall, winding along the coast via Flagstaff, Rocky Beach lookout, Nobby’s Beach and Harry's lookout to Sea Acres. There are several historical sites along the way and from May to November you could quite possibly see whales on their migration.
The walk ends at Tacking Point lighthouse; however you can break it up into shorter sections if you feel like a short walk or are walking with kids. There are opportunities for barbecues and swimming along the way, including at Shelley Beach and a beachside café at Flynn’s Beach that serves up gourmet burgers.
You could also start the walk at Tacking Point; finishing up at the Royal Hotel in Port Macquarie.

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
