Bringing the country to the coast... the Blue Water Country Music Festival is held over the long weekend in June each year and has a strong following of country music enthusiasts. A great event for a Winter weekend, there is always a busy program of music ranging from street buskers through to well known performers.
The Blue Water Country Music Festival takes in venues around Port Stephens including the main clubs for the headline acts (bookings essential), d'Albora Marina, Salamander Bay Shopping Centre, accommodation venues, cafes and restaurants and the main street of Nelson Bay (Stockton Street). Watch out for singers, boot scooters and bush poets in the street, at the shops and on the water.
Over the June long weekend Port Stephens really will be a little country town (and don't forget the whales who will be migrating right by our coastline, with cruises departing daily).
You will also need some accommodation for the weekend. Port Stephens Accommodation have over 230 self contained holiday properties in Port Stephens best locations.
