Inspired by the water and the natural environment: Water and the natural landscape are close to our heart in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region. Glimpses of water, the sound of crash waves, the dappled bush light and the raw beauty of the lush hinterland are the undercurrent of everyday. Escape into the landscapes of the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Art Collection.
