Discover Port Stephens & Newcastle

Looking for the perfect seaside holiday? Then Port Stephens is the place for you. From ocean activities like surfing Zenith Beach and snorkeling the waters of pristine Nelson Bay to dining on some of the world's best seafood or sandboarding down the iconic sand dunes of Stockton, Port Stephens has something for everyone.

What are the must-see attractions in Port Stephens?

Backdrop to countless films and music video clips, Stockton Bight's iconic sand dunes are a place of wonder. Set within the Worimi Conservation Lands and officially the largest moving coastal sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere, they are the perfect playground for sandboarding, quad biking, four wheel driving or camel and horse riding.

If ocean rather than sand is more your thing, then you are spoilt for choice in Port Stephens. Covering an area of approximately 98,000 hectares, Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park is one of NSW's most beautiful national parks. With rivers, lakes and over 26 breathtaking beaches from which to choose, Port Stephens is a water lover's paradise.

From exploring sheltered bays and surf breaks to watching sunsets with dolphin pods and scuba diving, a walk up Tomaree Head at Shoal Bay (in the Tomaree National Park) will give you panoramic views across the beaches, dunes, rocky coastline and forests of this magical area.

Fancy something a bit more urban? As the largest town in the region, Nelson Bay is the perfect place to start your Port Stephens journey. Cycle along the waterfront on the 5km Bartlett Cycleway, enjoy a latte and history lesson at the heritage listed c1875 Nelson Head lighthouse cottage or simply while away the evening hours with a meal or drink at one of the town's many quality restaurants or bars.
