When it comes to seafood in Port Stephens both residents and visitors alike are spoilt for choice. From prawns, fish and oysters to crabs, lobsters, and shellfish the mouth-watering quality and range of seafood is unique to this region, the envy of other regions throughout the state.
From the trawler to the table, your catch of the day is as fresh as it gets. Port Stephens is renowned for sensational seafood all year round with Hunter River estuaries and Myall Lakes and River bursting with sweet prawns and plump oysters, Blue Swimmer and Mud crabs and lobsters.
