Port Stephens is popular for bodyboarders with a choice of beaches to pick from and decent waves in most weather. The ocean beaches of Stockton and One Mile at Anna Bay, Box, Wreck or Zenith at Shoal Bay and Fingal Beach are popular (special mention of Box Beach, home of the 2 star 'Burton Toyota Box Beach Pro,' bodyboarding championships). Birubi (Stockton), One Mile and Fingal are all patrolled and take care to watch for rips at Box, Wreck and Zenith (although renowned for fast and hollow waves, perfect for bodyboarding).
Even if you aren't keen to get wet, there are some spectacular displays of bodyboarding to watch during the Box Beach Pro (and throughout the year).
