Spend a day on the 'Port Venture' doing a popular River Cruise and dolphin watch.
Port Venture offers Port Macquarie Cruises for Dolphin Watching, Lunch Cruises, Sunset Cruises, Eco History cruises and can cater for private functions or day tours.
The Whale watching is always filled with joy and delight and the Jet Boat is an experience you will never forget. During the warmer months of the year we also have camel rides on Lighthouse Beach, always great fun for all ages.
Something that we find truly special, is a drive to Comboyne in the Hinterland. A quaint little village in the mountains filled with bush walks and waterfalls to enjoy.

The NEST is not suitable for pets.
Stunning Nest. Beautiful in every way. Caring, attentive, delightful, interesting hosts ... and breakfast needed to be photographed before consumed. Unbelievable. We were made welcome and immediately included into the household. Stay there. Nestle there. Rest there. Go there. Enjoy.
Lovely hosts and beautiful accommodation. Rosalie and Carl very helpful and welcoming. Thank you for an enjoyable (but too short!) stay!
Rosalea and her husband were the ultimate hosts.- warm and sincere.Their home was immaculate and they couldn't do enough for us (including on the road sewing repairs). Breakfast was delightful and they catered for all our quirky allergies and food requirements. We would highly recommend if you want to feel you are staying with long lost relatives.
Our hosts at The Nest, Rosalie & Carl, were very generous with their knowledge and time. Bob & I greatly appreciated the fact that they showed us around town and even took us to some tourist spots that we would not have found on our own. The stay at their b&b was wonderful - very comfortable room with high-quality linens, the breakfasts were delicious and we especially enjoyed our long talks in their back yard. Both Bob & I would highly recommend the Nest. Thank you Rosalie & Carl!
We're lost for words, the experience of meeting and staying with Rosalie and Carl was way beyond our expectations. They are both such warm and kind people and it was a true pleasure to get to know them and stay in their wonderful home. We immediately felt as a part of their family and the breakfast was to die for. We couldn't possibly wish for anything else and will most definitely be back to get to know them and beautiful Port better.
The first stay was so nice with Rosalie and Carl at the nest that we decided to stay another night. So please find my first valuation about the very pleasant stay.
The Nest is a wonderful place to stay. Rosalie and Carl has made our visit to a very special one! After one day they made us feel beeing part of their family. It was such a great experience to get to know this fantastic couple. They made us feel beeing absolutely welcome. They gave us a very good "briefing" about what to do in Port. The breakfast service was brilliant.
They really take care about their guests and they have a fantastic eye for every detail.
Thanks so much for hosting us so nice!
Thank you so much for your kind words of appreciation of The NEST. Gregor & Sarah, you are two very beautiful people and we were honoured to have you as our guests. We wish you every delight and much joy on your voyage of discovery through life.

Rosalie and Carl take care of every detail. Their house has an amazing decoration and the room is lovely.
They made us feel at home sharing stories together and being very sweet to us. We stayed there on my birthday and they did everything to make my day very special.
We are so thankful and definitely would stay with them if we came to Port Macquarie again.
Thank you Cristina! We loved your stay with us and felt honoured to be able to treat you a little for your birthday. We really hope your stay in Australia and beyond is exactly as you dreamed it would be and we wish you a life of joy and fulfilment — the kind that really matters. You are both special people.
Blessings from The NEST. Rosalie & Carl
The NEST was a magical place to stay. Rosalie and Carl go above and beyond in their hospitality and their attention to detail is exquisite. The accommodation and included breakfast were extremely impressive and repeatedly surpassed our expectations. We felt welcomed unconditionally and The NEST has easily made its way to our shortlist of favourite places to stay.
I wish there were a 6 star rating! Our stay with Rosalie and Carl was just wonderful. It was a special holiday for myself and my fiance and we were made to feel like a King and Queen. I can say without hesitation that our stay at 'The Nest' was a highlight of our trip and without doubt the best airbnb experience that we have had. The stay was not only made beautifully enjoyable by their hospitality & kindness, but the attention to detail in their home is impeccable. By the time our stay was over I felt like we were leaving old friends and I cannot thank this fabulous couple enough for the warmth and memories that they have left with us.
Dear Bróna & Gary
We were honoured to have you stay with us and are so glad you enjoyed your sojourn here. You were truly wonderful guests. We wish you a breathtaking adventure through life together and hope to see you again before too long!
