June Long Weekend Guide - Sea Port Macquarie

Your guide to the June long weekend

There are few things that make us happier than a long weekend, and with the Queen’s birthday just around the corner (even with her lime green dress, Lizzie can’t do wrong), we’ve got the scoop on how to have a royally good time.

From high teas to live music, if you’re looking for ways to make that extra day count, read on friend.

Kick off the weekend at The Beach House

Get your groove on at waterfront fave Beach House, with live music playing all weekend AND happy hour kicking off from 4pm Friday (more reason to start the long weekend early). $10 passionfruit mojito’s, live tunes and tasty bites? See. You. There.

Howling Moon Festival at Black Duck Brewery

Jam out with the best up-and-coming home-grown blues artists on Sunday at Howling Moon Festival, featuring Cat Capocci, Papa Pilko and more. Add in Black Duck’s brews and you’ve got the perfect antidote the the winter blues.

Game on at Tacking Point Tavern

Watch Aussie Jeff Horn take on Terence Crawford live from the comfort of Tacking Point Tavern. Coverage kicks off from 10am on Sunday June 10, and we reckon it’s the best spot – for those of us who can’t get ringside.  Find out more.

Treat yourself at Zebu’s Koala High Tea

The Hello Koalas Festival is back, and we’re celebrating with lemon myrtle cupcakes and Caramello Koalas, scones, finger sandwiches and a whole lot more at Zebu’s Koala High Tea! Feeling bubbly? Upgrade to the High Tea with a Twist to enjoy a glass of sparkling for $39pp.

High Tea available Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 from 11am-4pm. Make sure you book by Friday 9 June – call 6589 2888.

Foreshore Markets? For sure!

Take a wander through stalls of unique handmade arts and crafts, gourmet food and local produce at the Foreshore Markets, taking place on Saturday 9th. After a wardrobe update? Check out the beautiful vintage clothing and handmade jewellery for a fresh look.

Cocktails at Bar Florian

Keep your spirits high at Bar Florian with a few of their famously delish cocktails. Give the Hemingway Daiquiri a shot for rich fruity flavours – or if you’re feeling smooth, a Chocolate Martini.

Party at Port Macquarie Hotel

Raise your glass to the long weekend as EDM producer Jesse Bloch raises the roof on June 9. Lighting up the stage from 9pm, we say get there early for a feed beforehand – it’s time to make The Big Macca burger wall of fame.
