Frequently asked questions

Which caravan parks in Port Macquarie have cabins?

Are there BIG4 caravan parks in Port Macquarie?

Ingenia Holidays Bonny Hills is the BIG4 caravan park in Port Macquarie.

Are there any pet friendly caravan parks in Port Macquarie?

Where should I stay in Port Macquarie in a caravan park?

  • Town centre. If it's your first time or you're keen to be close to most of the sights and activities of Port Macquarie, head straight for the centre of town where you'll still have access to local beaches and fishing points on Hastings River.
  • Bonny Hills. For those that prefer a bit more peace and quiet or to be surrounded by nature, Bonny Hills is the place to be. Long stretches of coastline, bush walks and wildlife are all on the agenda here.

How much does it cost to stay in a caravan park in Port Macquarie?

Unpowered sites cost on average from $30-$80 per night. Powered sites start from $35 and those with ensuites from $95.

How long can I stay in a caravan park in Port Macquarie?

Most holiday parks are happy with long-term stays with prior approval and some even have sites dedicated as residential spaces, such as Flynns Beach Caravan Park.

What should I consider when choosing a caravan park in Port Macquarie?

As a coastal destination, one of the most important considerations is how far you'll have to walk to get to the nearest beach. Keep an eye out for caravan parks with direct beach access and those with the best views.

Families travelling with young children should look out for parks with enough family friendly activities to keep the young ones entertained when you're not out exploring Port Macquarie. Jumping pillows, swimming pools and games rooms are all a big plus.

Couples looking for some quiet time will be best suited to a more intimate park with fewer sites and accommodation. A stay in nearby Bonny Hills ensures lots of space to get out and stretch your legs, and a more tranquil experience as well.

Where can I park a campervan overnight in Port Macquarie?

While street parking is free in Port Macquarie, it can be difficult to find a space big enough for long vehicles. If you do find a spot, make sure you are legally parked and that you check the sign postings to make yourself aware of any restrictions.

Council Rangers conduct random patrols across the region on a regular basis and a large portion of parking spaces in the CBD are electronically monitored. Your best bet is to find a caravan park for the night where you can have access to amenities such as power and bathroom facilities.
