Best pet-friendly accommodation in Port Macquarie
With its abundance of pet-friendly parks, beaches and cafes, Port Macquarie is a no-brainer for a holiday with your fur baby.
While only a handful of hotels, like Narimba Lodge, cater for four-legged friends, almost every caravan park in and around town welcomes them with open arms. As long as they are well-behaved and supervised at all times.
Big brands in the area that allow pets are NRMA, Reflections and BIG4. But it's always worth checking out individual policies, as some restrict visits during peak season (November to March).
If you're looking for a camping experience with a few more creature comforts, cabins in Stoney Park Holiday Park are the only pet-friendly lodgings of their kind in the area.

Best luxury Port Macquarie accommodation
After a pamper? Your first port of call should be the town's marina and the banks of the scenic Hastings River.
Here, on a small peninsula of its own, you'll find Sails, a favourite among TripAdviser users. Just on the cusp of receiving a 5-star rating, the property's stylish rooms, private jetty, top-notch service and on-site spa are unrivalled in the area.
If the rooms at Sails are booked out, a second favourite is Mantra the Observatory. Set back from Town Beach, spacious suites and private balconies offer stunning views of the bay. For that extra spark, a penthouse apartment which comes with unlimited access to the hotel's endota spa and 180-degree ocean views.
Plenty of self-catered and adjoined apartments make it easy for families or groups to enjoy a spot of luxury in Port Macquarie, too. Macquarie Waters Boutique Apartments offers a stylish space to relax and access to one of the only "dive-in" movie theatres in the country.
Best for families: Macquarie Waters Boutique Apartment Hotel
Best for couples: Mantra The Observatory
Best for 4.5-star luxury: Sails Port Macquarie by Rydges
Best Port Macquarie caravan parks
Caravan parks in Port Macquarie are dominated by well-established brands, so you know they'll be well-equipped. However, with this array of amenities comes higher prices.
If you prefer camping with all of the extras, spare a few bucks to stay at one of BIG4's two caravan parks. They're both around a twenty-minute drive from Port Macquarie.
If you haven't got your own tent or RV, check out a cabin. Caravan parks like Flynns Beach offer rentable cabins for reasonable rates. These are often made up of a double bedroom with ensuite, a combined kitchen and living space and an outdoor patio.
For a cheaper option, Edgewater Holiday Park offers slightly dated cabins for around $65 a night and powered sites from $35.
