Port Stephens is the ideal holiday destination for nature lovers. Visitors will find a wide range of unique attractions and activities to enjoy.
The port was named by Captain Cook when he passed on 11 May 1770, honouring Sir Philip Stephens. Because of its marine surroundings, Port Stephens is called the “Blue Water Paradise.”
The beautiful beach, which faces the Tasman Sea, stretches out for 32 kilometers. Some parts on this stretch of beach are as wide as 1 kilometer and features sand dunes which are more than 30 meters in height. These sand dunes are among the top tourist attractions in the beach.
