Framed Letter, Port Macquarie: The Ideal Climate, 1939

Port Macquarie’s mild coastal climate earned it the motto of being ‘Warm in Winter – Cool in Summer’, of which the town was very proud. Port Macquarie was recognised as a sea-side health resort in Ludwig Bruck’s ‘Guide to the Health Resorts in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand’ published in 1888, likening the climate to that of Lisbon.
