Wayfinding signs will be added along the coastal walk and in the town centres of Port Macquarie, Wauchope and Laurieton.

The signs are on track to start installation mid-year.

NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said a lot of tourists would explore the area on foot or bike and the signs would be critical to direct people.

Mr Marshall said tourism was not just warm and fuzzy.

“Tourism is about jobs and the economy as well,” he said.

The $250,000 project is jointly funded by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and the Tourism Demand-Driver Infrastructure program, a Commonwealth-funded initiative administered by the state government.

The funding will cover the design, manufacture and installation.

Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams said it was important to have uniform signs.

“I think the more we can move it [the signs] across the local government area and have that uniformity, the better it is and the easier it’s going to be for visitors,” she said.

Cowper MP Luke Hartsuyker said the Port Macquarie-Hastings had so much great tourism product and they wanted to make sure people could experience as much as possible and make it as easy for them as possible.

Mayor Peta Pinson said the project would bring a new element to signage throughout our CBDs and along the beautiful coastal walk.

“The signage will be wonderful for our visitors but also for our new residents to discover the beautiful region they have come to live in,” she said.

Cr Pinson said the council would build on these types of signs in the future.
