Leisure Tourist Park Port Macquarie
This is a relatively quiet, sub-tropical park a little away from the main road. The airport is close to the park, and some people may find it convenient. There are no flights during the night due to the noise curfew. Driving down, you can turn off from the Pacific Highway at Hastings River Drive and reach the Leisure Tourist Park very quickly. It is located opposite the Port Macquarie Hibbard Sports Club. It was previously known as Panthers Sports & Bowling Club.
You can walk to the river easily, and the town center is some 3 km from the park. It is a very short drive to the beach.
Its central location and a saltwater pool are great attractions to this park.
