The Area: Port Stephens
Affectionately known as the dolphin capital of Australia, Port Stephens is not just a sanctuary for myriad species of marine life but also for sun-seeking travellers chasing a relaxed getaway in an untouched paradise. A far cry from the busy beaches of other world-class tourist destinations, the region boasts pristine stretches of sand that are considered by many to be among the best in the country, and it is easy to find a secluded spot to while away the hours without distraction.
A bounty of national parks frame the large bay, and multiple untouched islands sit in the aquamarine waters just ready to be explored by curious souls. Animal lovers can take a cruise to get up close and personal with the highly intelligent creatures or choose to get acquainted with a land mammal during a beachside horse ride.
Adrenaline addicts will revel in high octane options like parasailing over the bay, going for an exciting 4WD tour or jumping aboard the exhilarating Thundaraft for the ride of a lifetime. Wine connoisseurs who appreciate a fine drop can sample vintages at a number of local wineries, while those who prefer a pint of beer sample craft varieties at Murray’s Craft Brewing Co.
