About Port Macquarie
The city of Port Macquarie is located on the beautiful NSW Mid-North coast, nestled beside the Hastings River and the Pacific Ocean. It is a thriving regional centre with one of the fastest growth rates in the country, and a variety of coastal and rural satellite towns. The mid-north coast of New South Wales relies heavily on a number of prosperous and viable local economies being able to foster entrepreneurial activities that are economically, environmentally and socially viable. Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is therefore proud to be hosting the 3rd Australian Regional Economies Conference, and will provide a perfect setting for this important event.
Port Macquarie is approximately 4.5 hours drive north from Sydney and 6 hours drive south of Tweed Heads. The area is easily accessed as it is serviced by major roads, rail and airlines.
