Walking & Cycling

Cycling is an exhilarating way to discover the natural beauty from the splendid coast to magnificent national parks. You’ll be thrilled with the great road-cycling routes and mountain biking tracks, ranging from easy terrain for children to challenging trails. You can hire all styles of bikes including tandems from local bike shops in Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay.

Explore the natural wonders on walking trails and tracks in the magnificent Tomaree National Park at your own pace. In particular don't miss the Tomaree Summit Walk at Shoal Bay where once you reach the top you will be greeted with picturesque views over Port Stephens and beyond.

The Hunter Region is home to some of the most popular motorcycling routes in the State – from meandering wine country roads to the pristine coastlines and beyond, there is truly something for everyone. 

Wind your way around the coastal roads of the Tomaree and Tilligerry Peninsulas to uncover their hidden gems, including a front row view of migrating whales (May to November), the friendly local dolphins and our resident koala population. Then head inland to discover the picturesque rural hinterland that features meandering rivers, peaceful country rides and quaint townships.
