Located south of Lake Cathie, Bonny Hills boasts some of the best coastal views in the region. It is home to the stunning Rainbow Beach, a huge expanse of white sand that goes on forever. The beach is patrolled during summer and has a fantastic picnic and BBQ area with playground equipment. Not only popular for swimming, Rainbow Beach is also an excellent surfing beach for both body boarders and surfers.The elevated coastal views from this seaside village, 20 kilometres south of Port Macquarie, are some of the most spectacular in the region, looking over some 14 kilometres of pristine beaches. Bonny Hills was originally home to the fishing enthusiasts amongst the rough, north coast timbermen and dairy farmers from nearby Wauchope and hinterland. The old wood fishing shacks of the past are long gone, replaced by homes and holiday parks with million dollar views.
