Port Stephens is one of the world’s hidden gems and natural wonders. Boasting simply beautiful stretches of coastline and waterways, it is a haven for beach-goers and marine enthusiasts as well and fantastic holiday spot for everyone.
The bays provide shelter and a playground for dolphins, fish, pelicans and the coast is wonderful place to watch the whales migrate north and south between June and November each year.
The amazing vast sand dunes offers spectacular scenery, great beaches and a myriad of adventure sports, such as sand sliding, 4 wheel driving, sand buggying and camel riding.
Swim or surf at one of the patrolled coastal beaches, One Mile Beach at Boat Harbour or Birubi Beach off Anna Bay. Or in the protected non surf beach of Boat Harbour beach. Fish off the rocks at Boat Harbour beach (a local’s known fishing spot) or just wonder around the beautiful little bays.
Add to all of this is high quality wineries, famously fresh and reasonably priced seafood and a range of walks and drives that lead to wonderfully scenic outlooks.
The bays and bay beaches offer great scuba diving, paddle boarding, canoeing and sailing.
The Marina at Nelson Bay offers a great vibrant atmosphere and many places to eat. You can take a dolphin watching cruise and whale watching in season. Eat or buy freshly caught seafood to put on the BBQ. Or just go fishing.
Whatever you chose to do you will love Port Stephens.
