Port Stephens Dolphins & Dunes

Discover the beautiful North Coast region of Port Stephens, with its diverse blue water paradise, its pristine waterways, golden sandy beaches, its eco diverse marina and National Parks. Nature is the centre of all that is Port Stephens and is the perfect escape from cosmopolitan Sydney. Cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge and tour through the leafy and affluent northern suburbs, travel over the Hawkesbury River, a holiday hub for boat lovers.

Arrive at The Australian Reptile Park, loaded with unique exhibits and animals. Enter ‘Lost World of Reptiles’ and journey into ancient pasts, reminiscent of an Indiana Jones movie scene and Spider World with spiders that are HUGE, HAIRY & SCARY! See platypus, Tasmanian devils, wombats, friendly kangaroos, cuddly koalas, giant crocodiles. We then head to Port Stephens.

The cruise will depart from Nelson Bay Marina at 1.30pm. Search for the pods of bottlenose dolphins. Watch as they play on the bow waves or why not ride the boom net and get close to our friendly visitors. Upon docking at the Marina, we will make our way to meet with the 1hr 4WD tour on the sand dunes. Experience the grandeur and tranquility of the local desert wilderness, environmental and historical sights. You may also like to try sand-boarding, a thrill you will not forget. Upon disembarking the 4WD tour, you will board the coach for your return transfer back to Sydney.
