Mary Boulton’s Pioneer Cottage – Discover how the pioneers lived. This house of rough-sawn timber, typical of those used by the early settlers, is on display together with utensils, transport, and tools of trade.
Historic hotels – Macksville proudly retains two historic hotels: the Star Hotel on River Street and the Nambucca Hotel on the corner of the Pacific Highway and Wallace Street. Opened in 1885, the Star Hotel is the oldest original hotel on the north coast of NSW. Visitors enjoying a wander around the town can sit on the verandah of the Star and watch for dolphins or admire the antiques, old photos and beautiful cedar staircase on display at the Nambucca.
