The Port Mac region has a huge selection of quality accommodation options from camping to luxury resorts. If you’re looking for something different (or for the ‘gram), we’ve rounded up (and tested) the following standouts:
  1. NATURE DOMES Located in the rolling hinterland hills of Toms Creek, experience a getaway with a difference! Stay in a geo-design dome, with a large deck and outdoor tub overlooking the property. Go off-grid without the grit… these domes are luxurious! Wander among alpacas, miniature ponies, goats and chickens in this off-grid wonderland. There’s a farm shop on site for local goodies and they offer a range of beautiful hampers.
  2. CAMPING AT THE LONG FLAT PUB This much-loved heritage pub is on the Oxley Highway inland from Wauchope and is a popular stop with motorbike enthusiasts. The pub itself is full of character and nostalgia, and the pub meals are top-notch. The beer garden overlooks the valley and river flats below, where you can set up camp, kayak and fish. Or, if you’re bringing the kids, grab an old-school surf mat and float down the gentle rapids.
  3. CAMP JORDAN We’ve got more than our fair share of awesome holiday parks, and Camp Jordan is Port’s newest offering, on the Hastings River, offering retro caravans, airstream trailers, luxe shipping container conversions and glamping tents. Plus, it has Blackfish Cafe and boat, kayak and SUP hire.
  4. TELEGRAPH RETREAT COTTAGES Even though it’s only 5 mins off the highway, this sublime property feels a world away. The three substantial and well-appointed cottages have fireplaces, spas and large decks overlooking the paddocks. You can feed the goats, chickens, ducks and geese. Great for families, groups, and couples.
  5. DIAMOND WATERS TREEHOUSE RETREAT These eco-certified, luxurious, hand-crafted treehouses are nestled into the forest for maximum tranquillity. The timber boardwalk allows you to wander across the adjacent wetlands and enjoy the views over the water and across to the mountains. The divine ‘Fernery’ caters for small conferences, retreats and boutique weddings.
  6. MANTRA OBSERVATORY Located opposite Town Beach, you can book a luxury 3br penthouse (sleeps up to 6) with multiple balconies overlooking the ocean, with cafes and restaurants on your doorstep! Smaller apartments and hotel rooms also available
