In & About Wauchope

Located on the Beautiful Hastings River & Oxley Highway, 19 kilometres west of Port Macquarie, Wauchope is a friendly town of country charm and hospitality. Surrounded by hobby farms, agriculture and over 40000 hectares of National Parks and State Forests, it is the gateway to waterfalls and outdoor adventure of the Hinterland.

The township has vibrant cafes, boutique shops, family friendly parks and picturesque walks along the Hastings River. Along the river foreshore you will find barbecue facilities, boat ramps and paths that are cycle friendly.

In the mid-1800s, pioneers made the town famous as a timber town. Now it is home to Timbertown Heritage Theme Park, a major working recreation of a typical 1800s timber town and home of Australia's largest water wheel.

Wauchope, a motorcycle friendly town, is the starting point of a popular stretch of long winding roads through the Great Dividing Range to Walcha.
