Picnic Set, 1950s

Summer holidays means outdoor dining including picnics and barbecues in scenic surrounds with family and friends. Port Macquarie boasts numerous such places. Shelly Beach with its easily accessible drive through semi-tropical rain forest was and remains a popular place for a picnic as does Tacking Point Lighthouse with spectacular ocean and coast views. Picnic tables were installed at popular locations in and around town including the Picnic Reserve near Town Green.
