South West Rocks is located in the Port Macquarie to Nambucca region of NSW, Australia.
South West Rocks offers clear aquamarine waters, tiny coves, a peaceful bay and lush, green forests fringed by light-coloured sands. Legend has it that escaped convicts abandoned their sinking boat, “The Trial”, and decamped to this beautiful area.
This natural wonderland is a hidden gem on the north coast, surrounded by eight beautiful beaches, numerous river tributaries and the Arakoon State Recreation Area.
Discover the treasures of the sea while scuba diving at Fish Rock or enjoy an historic visit to Trial Bay Gaol. There is an abundance of water activities on offer with eco river cruises and fishing charters available, or for those looking for a unique and interesting, it may be worth visiting the local arts, crafts and antique shops.
And don’t forget to stop off and taste the delicious oysters fresh from the Macleay River.
