Port Stephens and its surrounding areas is a great destination for school students to experience outdoor adventures. Port Stephens is located about two and half hours north of Sydney and is a blue water paradise.
Port Stephens lays claim to the title 'Dolphin Capital of Australia'. The bay is home to around 150 bottlenose dolphins, and there are several tour operators in Nelson Bay that offer dolphin-watch trips. These playful aquatic mammals often ride the bow wave just a couple of metres from the vessel.
Between May and June, humpback whales cruise past the town on their northern migration, returning south between September and November and these huge animals are often encountered on the dolphin cruises.
The Stockton Bight sand dunes need to be seen to be believed and Port Stephens 4WD Tours are the number one choice for all your dune adventures.
