Port Stephens sits on the East Coast of Australia, which would suggest that maybe you could pick up some good seafood here. This is very true, you have the choice of cafes and restaurants that specialise in or at least offer, some fresh local seafood. But, that's not all Port Stephens can offer.
There are over 50 restaurants and cafes in Port Stephens ranging from casual cafes with amazing coffee, to Asian, Italian, Indian, Spanish and Modern Australian restaurants... through to hatted restaurants for a truly memorable dining experience. Choose the cuisine you want and also factor in if you would like to be overlooking the water or in town (people watching). For something a little different there are also dinner cruises offered by some of the local cruise boats.
Port Stephens also has eight clubs and pubs offering casual, family friendly bistro's with daily specials (who can go past schnitzel night?).

Don't forget that the Hunter Valley is only 1.5 hours from Port Stephens. So base yourself here and enjoy a beachside holiday with a day trip to the Hunter Valley for wine tasting and more good food.
And, Tastes at the Bay - Food, Wine & Jazz Festival is held in early November each year. Click here for more information.
All this and only a 2.5 hour drive from Sydney, 1 hour from Newcastle or a short flight from Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
If all this sounds good, then you will need at least a few nights to sample it all. Browse and book online (see above)!
