The elevated coastal views from this seaside village, 20 kilometres south of Port Macquarie, are some of the most spectacular in the region. Bonny Hills was originally home to the fishing enthusiasts amongst the tough, north coast timbermen and dairy farmers from nearby Wauchope and hinterland. The old wood fishing shacks of the past are long gone, replaced by homes and holiday parks with million dollar views. Family friendly Holiday Parks are located in Bonny Hills and Rainbow Beach, only a short stroll to spectacular beaches. The cabins at Bonny Hills Holiday Park maximise the panoramic coastal vistas as do a number of other affordable holiday lettings throughout this area, ranging from houses to holiday units. Must do: Take a drive during the spring and summer wildflower season. Pack a picnic or fire up the barbecue for a day with the kids on the shady shores. Drop a line in on the beach. Practise your 4WD driving techniques along the vast expanse of Rainbow Beach. Take a moonlight walk along the beach. Find a shady tree and a good book and let the world drift by. The Greater Port Macquarie Visitor Information Centres can help you make the most of your time in the region.
