It might have the beaches and the lifestyle, but the bright future of Port Macquarie beyond a tourist destination and haven for retirees is now emerging.

Major infrastructure projects in the area include a $30m Charles Sturt University campus, which is expected to eventually become a full-scale university with upwards of 5,000 students.

It also benefits from more than $100m spent on medical infrastructure, in addition to millions spent on a new Kmart.

All this new building might have something to do with the fact that the population is expected to increase by 19.3% by 2031.

Furthermore, if residents ever feel the need to get to Sydney or Brisbane in a hurry, this suburb has its own regional airport to get them there.

Houses and townhouses are popular in this suburb. Townhouses on O’Brien Road can be picked up for around the $460,000.
