MACKSVILLE is a delightful riverside town on the Pacific Highway and a great place to experience some real country hospitality! The riverside parks and ‘Lily pond’ parkland at the southern end of the town are popular resting places for travellers heading north. Rich in history, the wide Nambucca River now provides many recreational opportunities – sailing, canoeing, jet ski and waterskiing, as well as fishing and rowing. On the northern riverbank you will find a great spot to stop and picnic or launch a boat. Away from the water, Macksville offers a range of tasty food products, arts and craft; and historic country pubs.
Macksville remains the hub of business in the Nambucca Valley where it was once a busy port. Here you will find the Nambucca Valley Council Chambers and a very vibrant industrial area – the location of MacNuts where local Macadamia Nuts are processed and you can purchase some of the local produce.
