Background to this region
Port Stephens is a large natural harbour located about 160 kilometers (99 mi) north-east of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. It lies wholly within the Port Stephens Local Government Area (LGA) although its northern shoreline forms the boundary between the Port Stephens and Great Lakes LGAs. More than 26,000 people live within 3 km (1.9 mi) of its 113 km (70 mi) long shoreline and more than 32,000 live within 10 km (6 mi).
Port Stephens has a narrow entrance between two striking hills of volcanic origin. The southern headland, “Tomaree” or “South” Head, rises to 120 meters (390 ft) above mean sea level (AMSL) while “Yacaba”, the northern headland, is 210 m (690 ft) AMSL. The harbour is mostly shallow and sandy but contains sufficient deep

Why we go there
Port Stephens lays claim to the title ‘Dolphin Capital of Australia’. The bay is home to around 150 bottlenose dolphins, and there are several tour operators in Nelson Bay that offer dolphin-watch trips. These playful aquatic mammals often ride the bow wave just a couple of metres from the vessel.
Between May and June, humpback whales cruise past the town on their northern migration, returning south between September and November and these huge animals are often encountered on the dolphin cruises.
Whether it’s for diving, fishing, boating, snorkeling or sandcastle building, this huge bay has everything you need for year-round aquatic action.
