Travel over the Sydney Harbour Bridge towards the North Coast region of Port Stephens. With crystal clear waters, Port Stephens boosts over 26 pristine beaches, National Parks, diverse marine life and allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of the City. Visit an awesome Australian Wildlife Park, join a dolphin watching cruise from Nelson Bay and have the chance to swim in the boom net. Visit Stockton Beach and join a 4WD tour of a massive dunes before sandboarding your way back down.
Our first stop is Walkabout Wildlife Park where you get up close and personal with Aussie wildlife! Pet a kangaroo, feed the farmyard animals and say G'day to the resident Emu!
When we arrive at Port Stephens, take a break for lunch (own expense) at Nelson Bay, the main town of Port Stephens. There are a few cute little souvenir shops around so feel free to have a browse and take in the local atmosphere.
Then we board a boat to go dolphin watching! The region is home to over 150 playful bottlenose dolphins who are known to play around the boat. You can grab a complimentary coffee or tea and spot these grey beauties from the spacious viewing deck or jump in the boom net attached to the boat to get up close and personal. During June and October you can upgrade to our whale watching cruise. The annual whale migration takes place around this time with plenty of whales playfully showing off some acrobatics as they make their way along the coast.
After our dolphin time, we take you sandboarding at Stockton Beach! We will jump in a big 4WD and cruise over the huge Anna Bay dunes to find the biggest drops possible to go down! Embrace the challenge, take a deep breath and whizz down huge the sand dunes on a boards especially designed to fly down sand!
