Port Macquarie was named after Lachlan Macquarie, the governor of NSW. Prior to European settlement, the area is thought to have been occupied by the Kattang Aborigines. Captain Cook sailed past this section of the coast in 1770, as did Matthew Flinders in 1802. However, the first to investigate the Hastings River Valley was John Oxley who followed the Hastings River during an overland trek from the Tamworth district in 1818.

Three ships set sail with 44 military personnel and 60 convicts who were chosen for their skills and good behaviour and encouraged with the possibility of conditional pardons or tickets-of-leave after 18 months. Thus was a penal settlement established in 1821 under Captain Francis Allman.  The convicts were set to work clearing what is now the CBD of thick bush (mostly tea-tree and banksia) and substantial trees. One of the first buildings - the garrison hospital - still stands today. At this time, Port Macquarie was the most northerly settlement in the colony.(Map of Port Macquarie)
