“Port Macquarie: 6km 8 minutes Sydney: 390km 4 hours, 20 minutes Built in 1879 by NSW architect James Barnet, Tacking Point Lighthouse is the thirteenth oldest lighthouse in Australia.”

The lighthouse is located in the picturesque coastal town of Port Macquarie, NSW, and sits atop a rocky headland which offers stunning panoramic views along Australia’s Mid-North Coast.

Due to the elevation of the rocky headland, the lighthouse itself is only eight metres high, and the area itself is a popular location for whale-watching during migration. Explore the gorgeous beaches of Port Macquarie along a stunning coastal walk, starting at Town Green foreshore and finishing at Tacking Point Lighthouse. This 9.1 kilometre trek offers exquisite views of Port Macquarie’s beaches, foreshore shrubbery and native wildlife.

The hinterland Lighthouse Beach has a gorgeous seven kilometres stretch of sand and is also a popular destination for surfers as the headland offers protection from summer north-easterly winds. Visitors can also enjoy a camel safari ride, go beach fishing and take to the sand in a Four Wheel Drive. The Surf Life Saving Club located on Lighthouse Beach also offers a variety of surf sports, as well as a kiosk for a cool drink or ice cream.
