'We had a great stay at Evas place and felt very welcome from the start. It’s a lovely property and we enjoyed a short walk through the bush which was lovely. Perfect location being right off the freeway but close to town as we were stopping along a road trip.' Jess 16.10.19

Transport Vehicles - Entry/Exit

  • Look for 1.5m x 2m signage: HIGHWAY STABLES @ 733 Fernbank Creek Road,  Port Macquarie  
  • Livestock vehicles LESS THAN 10m lenght (ordinary double float) enter/exit from any direction
  • Livestock vehicles GREATER THAN 10m lenght (goose neck, ridge truck) enter / exit from Hastings River Drive. It is an extra 6 minutes drive for total peace of mind.  Hastings River Drive in the northern entrance to Port Macquarie
