It's pretty much hard to miss when it's working, go to "towns beach" in Port MacQuarie and then go to flag staff rock and paddle directly out, it's not isolated or anything, cause there's actualy a car park near it...

Stay cool if you're droped in on 5 times out of 10, once you get on the wave, set rail quickly, it acts like a point break so it'll barrel fast and powerful all the way till elephant rock, have fun and be inventive.
Great place to surf, some incredible barrels, some really harrasing locals. Don't get caught on the sandbar in the impact zone, you have to paddle in cause there's no way you can paddle back out through the waves most of the time.
I love this spot, everyone does when it works, it's like our own little pipe. Cold when it works so bring a wetsuit. kingy (bodyboarder) last time i saw him out there got a 10-14 barrel, it was bullshit. It's no problem when it doesn't turn out to be good cause there are so many other surfable spots around it.
