About Port Stephens


You’ll know when you’re falling - racing heartbeat, accelerated breathing, giddy feelings of euphoria, increased energy, non-stop smiling, daydreaming and... the thought of leaving just doesn’t bear thinking about! Well, it’s only natural… there’s a lot to love in Port Stephens.

For such a small dot on the global tourism map, mother nature has gifted Port Stephens with some pretty big attractions! Like…our magnificent Bay - twice the size of Sydney Harbour (and twice as beautiful!), our monumental sand dunes - the largest in the southern hemisphere (that’s big!) and we have a front row view of some of the largest creatures on earth (welcome to the Humpback highway).

If size doesn’t matter that much to you, then you’re bound to love our little treasures. Hidden gems worth discovering like colourful underwater sea sponge gardens, the seal colony on Broughton Island or our friendly local dolphins.

This truly unique part of our planet, comprising around 1,000 square kilometres, has something to please just about every taste and budget. Camp out under a million stars, or perhaps you’d prefer to stay in five star luxury? Hoist a mainsheet and sail around the headland, or just let your head land on a 1000 thread count sheet? Climb over rocks and through scrub to reach a great view, or indulge in hot rocks and body scrub and reach for a Veuve?

If you love sparkling waterways, pristine beaches, whales, dolphins, bushwalking, cycling, kayaking, sailing, golf, cafés, parasailing, fine dining, luxury spas, shopping, fresh produce, wineries, breweries, sliding down sand dunes, quad-biking, horse riding, waterfront dining, spectacular sunsets and friendly people…. then be prepared to fall in love with Port Stephens!

P.S. I love you xxx
