I was going to put in an entry about Port Stephens, where we stayed last night... BUT.... Due to the massive storms of a week ago, our 4wd sand dune tour, as well as our sandboarding booking were cancelled as the National Park was closed due to damage. Even the local lookout was closed!
So, we drove in last …
This morning we woke and went to have breakfast at Kenn and Julie's house which is about 150m from our rv. They live in a Lifestyle Village and we got a prim positon right next to the tennis courts and beside the heated indoor swimming pool!
We all had plans for our day; go to the beach, play tennis, swim in the pool or go to the surf. How are we going to fit it all in???!!!
The road to Port Macquarie was a good one. Divided highway, motorway and toll roads took us inland from Sydney then along the coast from Newcastle.
Our first day began with sunshine and we walked "The Breakwall" which is alongside the Sundowners Breakwall Caravan Park. At one end is the surf beach and the other in the heart of town. People have painted many of the large rocks along the footpath. There is ...
... had was soon gone when 10km down the road, we grinded to a halt just as heavy rain began. Obviously not our day. Sat there for a while wondering what to do as rain leaked through various places and road trains sped past rocking us on the highway. We eventually filled the radiator up, jumped back in and carried on, repeating the same breakdown process 5 times before arriving at the next ...
... am feeling really good. As I start to head North after passing Elizabeth bay and through Booti Booti, the road becomes very flat. I make good time, despite stopping at one point to go and have a look at a fabulous beach. At half 12 I arrive at Forster having ridden 39 miles and have a ice cream, before setting off again towards Taree.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMacquarie Waters Hotel & Apartments Port Macquarie
Our stay at Macquarie Waters was one of the best stays we've had in Australia...
The staff were amazing, very friendly and professional with great knowledge.
The apartments were spacious, well appointed and the bed was the most comfortable I've slept in. I didn't move all night!
The weather was marvellous, Port Macquarie is the most beautiful town we've visited on our travels...
The pool and spa outside were heated, and they have movies played while you're sitting in the pool! And even better was a rooftop spa, nothing like sitting in a luxurious spa pool looking out over the mouth of the river to the sea!
Lastly, we ordered room service from the hotel restaurant (The Corner), which was great value for money and just delicious! Beautifully presented as well!
We'd recommend this hotel to anyone!
