NRMA Port Macquarie Breakwall Holiday & Caravan Park review

We’re partnering with NRMA holiday parks to show you around their family-friendly, feature-packed holiday parks!

NRMA Port Macquarie Breakwall Holiday Park is a stunning waterfront park perfectly located in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia. We spent ten fun-packed days enjoying all the delights this beautiful park has to offer.

When you choose to stay at NRMA Port Macquarie Holiday Park, you’ll find yourself holidaying in the midst of a pristine park, beautifully run by its friendly staff – a warm welcome from Dawn the park manager is waiting for you at reception!

You simply can’t beat the Port Macquarie location of this holiday park. Bordering the park is the Port Macquarie Breakwall – a tourist attraction in its own right. At one end of the Breakwall you’ll find the beautiful Port Macquarie Town Beach. At the other end, the Port Macquarie town centre for shopping and restaurants. This park truly enjoys the best of both worlds!

The Port Macquarie Breakwall is situated alongside the picturesque Hastings River, a hub of fun water activities and beautiful wildlife.

Fish jump, sting rays fly and dolphins play in the river alongside the Breakwall. There are all sorts of sea birds to see. The fruit bats flying en-masse across the sunset skies in an astonishing sight.

Tourist boats cruise about, taking in the views. A sea plane taking off and coming in to land is a common sight on weekends. Jet-skiers occasionally race alongside the Breakwall too.

The Breakwall is probably most famous for its decoratively painted rocks – it’s a lot of fun to wander along the Port Macquarie Breakwall and read them all!

You’ll find people walking, fishing and sightseeing. This is a popular place to be for good reason – it’s an absolutely stunning location – and it’s all only steps away from your caravan, cabin or tent!

Playgrounds & places to play

The caravan park playground

There no shortage of fun for the kids at Port Macquarie Breakwall!

Along the Breakwall and also within the holiday park, paved roads mean kids (wearing the appropriate helmets of course) can ride their skateboards, scooters and bicycles to their heart’s content. The park’s tarred roads have a reassuringly low speed limit and, as always, parental supervision is required.

Dogs can be walked within the holiday park on a leash, along the Breakwall and at several dog-friendly beaches in the area. Many local cafes with outdoor dining are dog-friendly too, such as the on-site Little Shack cafe.

Beautiful Nobbys Beach is dog friendly

Our favourite Port Maquarie dog beach (and there are several!) was Nobbys Beach, a beautiful sandy beach with rocky outcrops along it, just five minute drive along the coast road from the caravan park.

There are some pet exclusion times during peak booking periods at Port Maquarie Breakwall, such as school holidays, so you’ll need to book your stay directly with the holiday park by phone directly.

The Little Shack is a waterfront outdoor café restaurant and bar located at the NRMA Port Macquarie caravan park. In the mornings this is the place to get your much-needed barista coffee, and in the evenings on the weekend it’s the home of delicious meals eaten al-fresco style at the outdoor tables.

We loved watching the fabulous orange sunsets and the amazing spectacle of thousands of flying fruit bats leaving their sanctuary in the twilight whilst we enjoyed our meal.

You can even take your dog with you to the café, as it’s dog-friendly!

There are many more excellent restaurants and cafes all just a short stroll down the waterfront boardwalk from NRMA Port Macquarie.
