Port Macquarie named #1 ...for breakdowns

Last year, the NRMA attended to 1.2 million breakdowns across NSW & ACT, including 3,767 to rescue babies or pets from locked cars. One-third of all calls were battery or electrical related.

But there was one location that topped the list. And it’s on the Mid North Coast.


The NRMA fixed more than 6,000 cars locally or 16 a day. Port Macquarie topped the charts with one breakdown every hour! We can tell you right now that our very own Bodge, here at the station, has called the NRMA to come and change his tyre on no less than 3 occasions this year. (Poor form, Bodge.)


The top 10 locations were:

  1. Port Macquarie (8,148)
  2. Blacktown (7,662)
  3. Castle Hill (7,442)
  4. Sydney CBD (6,636)
  5. Baulkham Hills (6,339)
  6. Mascot (6,184)
  7. Coffs Harbour (6,034)
  8. Mosman (5,942)
  9. Marrickville (5,221)
  10. Randwick (5,111)
