From Bendemeer near Tamworth to Port Macquarie

Bendemeer is a small village located on the Macdonald River, between Tamworth and Armidale and we recently helped a family from there make a “seachange” to their new home in Port Macquarie.

Bendemeer, which was originally located on the New England Highway, has been bypassed so that this small town is quiet, rustic and sleepy. It is an ideal place to stop on the drive north. The gabled general store and adjoining stable date from around 1870. St Andrew’s Uniting Church was built in 1867 and was originally a Presbyterian Church. The main appeal lies in the sleepy town’s location beside the Macdonald River which makes it ideal for picnics, swimming, fossicking, trout fishing and camping.

Bendemeer has the dubious distinction of being one of the first places that Captain Thunderbolt robbed. In 1864 he held up the Northern Mail but fortunately he or one of his descendants were not around to bother us!
