If you enjoy being near, or on, the water then you’re going to love Port Stephens!
Watching the sunrise at a deserted Zenith Beach with the perfect wave; picnicking at Little Beach while the kids jump off the jetty; discovering underwater treasures snorkelling at Fly Point; paddleboarding on water as still as glass; cruising the Myall River in a houseboat, sailing around Soldiers Point... so many ways to enjoy the beaches, rivers, lakes and bays.
With a Marine Park comprising 26 beaches, a bay twice the size of Sydney Harbour, two rivers, two lake systems and all the accompanying creeks and estuaries, it’s no surprise Port Stephens is known as the blue water wonderland! What are you waiting for... jump in!
