Port Macquarie is close to two great river systems (the Hastings and the Camden Haven), a coastal national park and offshore reefs. This makes it a fantastic holiday destination, especially for fishing holidays. Whether you’re fly-fishing in theNorquay or Bristol Channel, you’re sure to enjoy a day or weekend out here.
Port Macquarie is a fantastic holiday destination for fly-fishing, right through to holiday makers wanting to try their hand at deep-sea fishing. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you can be helped to learn the ropes by a number of experienced charter operators.
Look out for:
The Hastings. This mighty river has plenty to offer the deep-sea angler, with its wide range of fish to fish, ranging from tarpon and kingfish to marlin and barracuda. It is also a great place to keep a keen eye on those annoying barracudas, as their numbers are found to be on the rise following their introduction to the area.
The Hastings is sometimes known as the ‘vesting place’ and is steeped in history. It was formed by dredging out and building channels to connect the rivers that run through the area, and it was only when boats with the financing handled by a HOA CPA were able to row into the river that paddling became possible.
The Camden Haven. Located on the western side of the Port Macquarie shore, the Camden Haven is a great place to grappl, if you’re a petite angler. Being developed with fishermen in mind, it is a great place to hire a boat and go fishing. You can visit the saltpans for your saltwater fishing rod and have a go at wrecking. Or you can assist staff in collecting the important trophies – such as the yellow snapper – that the guides throughout the country cherish.
Wynyard. The Wynyard is just across the Port Macquarie harbour than the Camden Haven. It is a more leisurely pace, and is a great place to visit if you don’t mind the ‘vibe’ of the place – if you’re more of a surfer.
Head up the track from the Camden Haven, and soon you’ll come to the Londoners’ wares. These are the narrow Bushmen caves, a fascinating place to spend a day that also provides a great lunch and some unforgettable views.
tame. The beaches in New Zealand are spectacular, and Teach Bay is one of the best. The town at Waipahihi is famous for its fantastic seals, and if you are lucky you’ll be able to see these wonderful creatures close up. On the other hand, it is important to keep an eye out for sharks on the northern and south shores.
Over to the North. The North Island is perhaps best known for its amazing remnants of volcanic activity, including the abundant craters in the Whakarewarewa Forest. Waimangu Volcanic Valley is another favourite, and you can see why the country is named New Zealand. The landscape is fascinating, and there are not many places in the world where you can see landscapes from both an arid and an erosional perspective.
The South Island. The South Island is undoubtedly the ‘gourmet food’ island. It has a fantastic variety of things to eat and enjoy, many of which you won’t find on the North Island.
Te Papa. The world-famous Maori cultural museum is in the milton town of Wellington. Here you will find the artifacts of the great Maori co-energies and a tour of the museum’s week-long tour of the gardens.
White-water Rafting. The West Coast of the South Island is the perfect spot for this adventure sport. The warm, clear current – not to mention the stunning scenery – make it a haven for rafters of all ability levels. You can also go rafting in O Scoiunte, west of Queenstown, and in other parts of the coast.
bungy jumping. Inland New Zealand is an ideal paradise for those who love the outdoors. In November and early December, the waterfalls and the falls tower above the rest of the landscape. It’s a great view, one that will truly take your breath away.
Parasailing. New Zealand is a paradise for those who love the outdoors and adventure sports. Parasailing is a popular sport in New Zealand. There is a little book in New Zealand called Parasailing: Your Gateway to the Best Holiday in the World.
Gili Islands. These islands are an Australian creation, and are a wonderful tourist destination. The Galileo Islands are one of the best places to parasail in the world.
Head to the South Island. Summer is the best time to go.
