About Hastings Photography Group
We are based in Port Macquarie on the sunny mid north coast of NSW, Australia.
Our club is a member of the Federation of Camera Clubs NSW.
The aim of our group is to provide a positive environment in which to learn about photography, to develop photographic skills through competition, presentations and social activities, and to have FUN!
We have regular 7 p.m. meetings on the first and third Tuesday night of each month, at Emerald Downs Community Centre, Lighthouse Plaza, Port Macquarie. Entry is via Emerald Drive roundabout into the shopping centre. Venue is located at the corner of the Plaza building in the lower car park area.
