Souvenir Mug, Dolphin and Marine Park, 1970s

During the 1970s and 1980s Port Macquarie was the home of many animal and wildlife parks including the Dolphin and Marine Park, later known as King Neptune’s Park. The  park opened to the public in 1973 and was home to seals, dolphins and other marine life. Located at the end of the breakwater, the park was a popular tourist attraction right up until its closure in January 1989.
