Tourism support


Greater Port Macquarie work closely with Destination NSW and the Greater Port Macquarie Tourism Association to support local businesses, and increase their visibility to visitors and locals through marketing and publicity opportunities.

They work to deliver an annual Public Relations Program that actively seeks out opportunities to promote our region across a range of print and digital platforms. 

Promote your business

List your business on the destination website.

We encourage local businesses to add their listing on the Greater Port Macquarie website, which is seen by over 30,000 people each month. This listing feeds through from the Australian Tourism Data Website (ATDW) platform to process your registration, meaning your business is searchable in a local database, but also nationwide.

Make sure you have some images and a business blurb ready then register and list your business on ATDW, which will then feed into the Greater Port Macquarie website automatically.
