Port Stephens

The activities and experiences in Port Stephens are much different from the metropolitan Sydney. The area is only about 2 1/2 hours drive north of Sydney. The beautiful bays and golden beaches can easily be found along the coastal areas. Nelson Bay is well-renowed all over the world for Hump Back Whale Watching. The whales migrate north to warmer waters from late May to July, then return south to the Antarctic from September to November.

There are also around 165 bottlenose dolphins living within the port area, as Port Stephen is named the "Dolphin Capital of Australia". Hire a boat to watch or just view them from the shore being a great fun. Driving 4WDs or having 6WDs tour on Stockton sand dunes is another wonderful adventure. Being a seaside town, Port Stephens is also famous for the local fresh seafood.
