Port Stephens is a place of scenic beauty only two and a half hours drive north of Sydney. With its large natural harbour spanning 24km between the mouth of the Karuah River to the Pacific Ocean, it is a blue water paradise for marine creatures and holiday goers alike. Once here you will feel miles from anywhere!

Port Stephens has that laid-back country atmosphere and has become one of the major holiday destinations on the North Coast of NSW. Renowned for its crystal clear waterways and unspoiled golden beaches, its landscaped beauty rivals the world's top scenic spots.

If you love being close to nature then you will love Port Stephens. Koalas, dolphins, whales and the incredible variety of flora and fauna help to make Port Stephens one of the natural wonderlands of the Eastern Coast of New South Wales.


Nelson Bay is on the southern shore of Port Stephens on the North Coast of New South Wales Australia.

Nelson Bay is the ideal North Coast tourist destination for exploring the natural wonders and tourism attractions of Port Stephens, Hawkes Nest and nearby Raymond Terrace. The Hunter Valley wine district also makes an excellent day trip.

Port Stephens is blue water paradise, the permanent home of 160 bottlenose dolphins, and port-in-passing for over 3000 migrating humpback whales. Don't miss the chance for some whale watching in season - it's an unforgettable experience.

Nearby National Parks offer many bushwalks and secluded coastal walking trails.
