Port Stephens Holidays for Empty Nesters
The kids are off your hands, you have said goodbye to work, it's time to enjoy yourselves.
Port Stephens is located on the east coast of Australia, just 2.5 hours North of Sydney, 1 hour north of Newcastle and a short flight from Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Perfect for a short break away, a stop off along the east coast heading to or from Queensland or a long relaxing holiday by the sea.
Port Stephens harbour is 2.5 times larger than Sydney Harbour and is home to around 120 Bottlenose dolphins year round. Port Stephens also boasts 26 golden sandy beaches, Tomaree National Park and the largest coastal sand dune system on the Australian coastline (the Stockton Sand Dunes). Port Stephens is also a great base where you can explore the nearby Hunter Valley, Morpeth, Newcastle and the Barrington Tops.
When you are in Port Stephens make sure you allow some time to check out the area... catch the ferry across to Tea Gardens for lunch, visit Nelson Head Lighthouse and tea rooms, join a 4WD tour of the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, visit Port Stephens Community Arts Centre, join a dolphin or whale watch cruise, play golf, go fishing, do a little boutique shopping and sample some local produce at local cafes and restaurants. Living life to the fullest? Then soar above the water on a parasail, ride a quad bike over the sand dunes or join a horse ride on the beach.
