There are only a few locations in Australia where rain-forest touches the beach, this house is uniquely positioned at Harry's Lookout at Shelly beach. There is a short (150m) well constructed boardwalk through the Rainforest to the sands of Shelly Beach. (Sea Acres National Park contains one of the largest, least disturbed and most diverse coastal rainforests in NSW).
The northern end of the beach is popular for surfing yet the southern end is sheltered and safe being protected from ocean swell.
Popular Activities here include, surfing, sunbathing, fishing, swimming, diving, beach sports, hang gliding, barbecues and picnicking.
From May to November Harry's Lookout (100 meters away) is a popular location for whale watchers as giant humpbacks migrate along the east coast to the warmer waters of the South Pacific to breed. Late in the season as they return to they Antarctic, Mothers and calves are sometimes seen less than a couple of hundred meters away from land and can be very playful, jumping out of the water for hours without stopping.

The New South Wales region
New South Wales lies on the east coast of Australia. The State capital, Sydney, is Australia’s premier gateway and the largest city in Australia. Well serviced by flights from across the world, NSW also has a network of regional airlines, trains, buses and coach services making it easy to get around.
On the scenic North Coast of NSW, you’ll discover a hinterland of lush river valleys and a coastline of sparkling uncrowded beaches that are easy to get to along the Legendary Pacific Coast touring route. The North Coast has some of the best, and most well known, beaches in Australia at Byron Bay, Lennox Head, around Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie, Port Stephens and Newcastle.
North Coast holiday choices are many and varied. You can tackle the vast sand dunes of Stockton Beach, north of Newcastle, by 4WD or go scuba diving at Solitary Islands Marine Park, off the coast at Coffs Harbour. Hiking through forests, thousands of years old, in World Heritage-listed Dorrigo National Park is a real adventure as is being part of the alternative vibe at famed Channon markets on the scenic, meandering drive to Lismore.
Whale watching is also popular at many locations along the North Coast. During their northern migration, most whales come within 3 km of the NSW coast so you can see them from headlands and lookouts in national parks. Some popular spots on the North Coast are Cape Byron State Conservation Area, Bundjalung National Park (Iluka Bluff), Yuraygir National Park (Angourie Point), Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve (Coffs Harbour), Hat Head National Park (Smoky Head), Tomaree National Park (Tomaree Head at Port Stephens) and Wyrrabalong National Park (Crackneck Lookout).
Whale-watching tours are also popular on the North Coast. You’ll find a wide range of tours on offer from Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Port Stephens. Most humpback whales in NSW waters are actively migrating so there are strict guidelines about disturbance by vessels that could affect the animals. Humpback whales and southern right whales migrate along the NSW coastline throughout June and in the first week of July, and return southwards from around September to November.
Greater Port Macquarie has things to see and do for all ages. You can enjoy activities such as jet boats, 4WD tours, scenic river cruises and much more. With the Pacific Ocean, golden beaches, lush rainforests and abundant wildlife, these are just some of the reasons that so many people visit us time and time again.
Rich in history, vibrant with art and alive with culture, Port Macquarie is a treasure trove of impressive convict built buildings. We also offer a change of pace with your choice of shops, galleries, arts and crafts centres and museums.
Then there are the mornings surfing with the dolphins, a rainforest picnic by a waterfall or close encounters with migrating whales, just some of the things you can do here.
