OERu/OERu 18.11 Meeting/Accommodation
Charles Sturt University campus
We recommend that participants seek accommodation in the city, which would require a short taxi ride to the campus. There are many hotel options in downtown Port Macquarie which include:
- Mercure Centro Port Macquarie (about 5.8 km from CSU Port Macquarie campus)
- Macquarie Waters Hotel & Apartments (about 5.8 km from CSU Port Macquarie campus)
- Rydges Port Macquarie (about 6.2 km from CSU Port Macquarie campus)
- Sails Resort Port Macquarie (about 5.8 km from CSU Port Macquarie campus, but farther from the town centre.)
You can book rooms directly on hotel websites, but better deals may be found if you go through online services such as Trip Advisor, Expedia, or Trivago.
The main natural attractions include Port Macquarie's many beaches. The Billabong Zoo offers visitors the opportunity to get up-close and personal to Australian and exotic animals. The Koala Hospital, with guided tours conducted every day at 3.00pm, is also a popular destination.
