You've come to the right place! This beautiful seaside destination located just 2.5 hours to the north of Sydney or 1 hour to the north of Newcastle is known for its array of wonderful beaches, pristine waters and plenty of marine-focused things to see and do. Whale watching and dolphin swims are a key focus at Port Stephens, with a great chance to get out and see the whales during their migratory season just a short boat trip out from the harbour.
Quiet coves and great surf beaches have been luring travellers to Port Stephens for generations – and rightly so. But this holiday spot is about more than sand and sunscreen.
