Getting Here

Self Drive...
Port Stephens is a 2½ hour drive north of Sydney along the M1 Motorway. At the end of the M1, turn right at the roundabout, following the sign ‘Hexham & Pacific Highway’ (BP service station and Hungry Jacks will be on your next left). The road will veer to the right and merge with the New England Highway after which you should merge to the left lane taking the sign ‘Taree & Pacific Highway’, which will direct you over the Hexham Bridge.

Look for the sign ‘Next Exit Richardson Road - Raymond Terrace/Nelson Bay’ to get to Lemon Tree Passage, Soldiers Point, Nelson Bay, Corlette, Shoal Bay, Fingal Bay, One Mile Beach or Anna Bay. You continue along Richardson Road, following the Nelson Bay signs, until you reach a roundabout. Then... follow the signs to the destination of your choice!

For visitors heading for Karuah, continue along the Pacific Highway following the signs that lead to the Karuah turn-off.
