Town profile

The drive is only 30 minutes to Port Macquarie, recent improvements to the Oxley Highway especially around the juntion with the Pacfic Highway (the Donut) have made the journey easier.

Here you’ll find many fine examples of Australian character homes. Ever dreamed of a weatherboard home with bullnose verandahs, polished floorboards and high corniced ceilings? Then Wauchope is the place to search. If you are handy with tools, keep your eyes peeled as there are still plenty of gems here to be rennovated.
