Mayor's welcome


A very warm welcome to the Port Macquarie-Hastings on behalf of our entire community. We’re lucky to live in one of the best places in Australia, with a vibrant community, wonderful year-round climate, relaxed lifestyle and pristine natural environment. You’ll find that our community is built on a great sense of pride, passion and camaraderie. Your choice to be part of our community is one I’m sure you won’t regret, and you’ll soon discover why so many of us choose to call this wonderful place… home.

Use the links on your right to access information on community demographics, things to see and do and our New Resident's Guide. While you’re exploring our website, don’t forget to subscribe to our eNewsletters, they’re a great way to receive important information on Council projects, events and activities directly to your email. Our Facebook page is also a great way to stay in touch with local happenings - every day we’re posting updates on Council projects, interesting things that are happening in our community, local events, things to do and explore, and opportunities to get involved and have your say.

So I really encourage you to get involved and contribute, perhaps join one of our local libraries, help out by volunteering, and really embrace what it means to be part of the Port Macquarie-Hastings community.

Acknowledgement of Country

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council proudly acknowledges our Aboriginal community as the area’s first peoples and traditional owners of the land and water on which they relied. We acknowledge that we, the community, gather in Birpai Land. We pay respects to the Birpai elders both past and present and we also extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We recognise their rich culture and we embrace the spirit of reconciliation.
