Sitting in the land "downunder" (Australia), Port Macquarie is known as a gorgeous beach destination with a history as a penal colony that is perched at the mouth of the Hastings River on the Mid North Coast in New South Wales. Located only 390km from Sydney and 570km south of Brisbane, the town has a population of 45,698 with many hanging out on its sandy coastline, slurping espresso in funky cafes or getting creative in a coworking venue. Predominantly a retirement destination, Port Macquarie is also an escape hatch for those wishing to run away from the big city smoke. You can hang out with koalas at its wildlife park and koala breeding center or take a walk along the coastline where you can quite often see dolphins and whales splashing about in the ocean. Port Macquarie has numerous heritage-listed sites to poke your nose into and its central business district has 2 shopping hubs where you can trash your credit cards.

The city is no tech hub per se, but it does have its intrepid and creative souls meandering around who like to create their own version of the perfect work/life balance. The Australian government has unveiled a new trial visa scheme aimed at fixing Australia's tech talent shortage, which is being hailed as a game changer for the local fast-growing startups. This new "Global Talent Scheme" visa for one year replaces the short-term working visa. It will allow companies who operate in STEM-related fields to hire up to 5 people per year on this visa with applicants being eligible for permanent residency after 3 years. Startups in Australia are celebrating this new support.

Port Macquarie may just be one of the coastal towns that becomes a hot spot for those individuals on the startup road who have a hankering to be beside the seaside. The bonus is the fact that when your brain is about to implode from too much work you can splash in the ocean.
