The Laundy family has partnered up with hospitality operator Alistair Flower to purchase the Tacking Point Tavern in Port Macquarie. The 6,700 sqm pub possesses a spacious beer garden and Port Macquarie’s largest outdoor screen, and serves as the latest in a string of deals in Port Macquarie, prompted by the coastal town’s population swelling as people continue to move away from metropolitan Sydney.
