Mantra The Observatory is the ideal spot for a holiday in Port Macquarie. It's a short drive to the town or easy 15 minute walk, and away from noise except for the sounds of birds and the waves. The beach is on your door step. The hotel has a great indoor pool and spa. Apartment amenities are great including full kitchen with espresso machine. There are plenty of activities to do around Port Macquarie which makes it a great destination for families with children.
