I booked a Surf&Stay package only a few days before arrival and super friendly and caring staff booked me in at Soul Surfing for surf lessons every day.
Surf, eat, sleep - I had a super awesome week in Port Macquarie!

great job done by the staff to introduce the possibility of whale watching. we never thought of this before and it was one of the best things we did on our road trip. The staff knows their city and what to do there

Located halfway between Sydney & Byron Bay, Port
Macquarie YHA is more like a resort than a backpacker hostel. Guests can relax in
the poolside cabana, swim, or snooze in a hammock under palm trees. Make new
friends with a BBQ in our cosy courtyard, enjoy loads of entertainment in the
games and TV/movie room, and hang out with ‘Cheeky’, our pet parrot. The town,
shops, riverside cafes and bars are just a 5 minutes stroll away. This hostel
is not recommended as suitable for children under 12 from December to April.
Visit Australia's only Koala hospital - and it's free. Cheap surf lessons, bargain scuba diving courses, 9 amazing beaches, kayak tours, coastal & bush walks, wineries, camel rides, indoor rock climbing, whale watching, bike riding, jet boats/jet ski, guided subtropical rainforest walks and more. Free body boards and $5 all-day bike hire available at the hostel.
Riverside bars, cafes and restaurants all with live music, nightclubs, karaoke night and open mic nights.
