2 Overview

Discover the beautiful coastal region of Port Stephens. But first, you’ll get to interact with Australian wildlife including cute koalas and cavorting kangaroos. You can also say hello to the huge saltwater crocodile. In Port Stephens, board your boat and head out in search of wild dolphins. Then it’s all downhill from here, when you go sand-boarding on dunes that climb up to 40 metres high!

Sydney Port Stephens Day Tour with Dolphin Watching Cruise, Sandboarding, and Australian Wildlife

A two hour drive north of Sydney is the picturesque coastal town of Port Stephens. Often referred to as Australia's blue water paradise, Port Stephens' tranquil waters are home to more than 140 resident bottlenose dolphins. It is Australia's dolphin capital!

A visit to Port Stephens is not complete without a dolphin watching cruise. Sit back and relax as you view the amazing nature that surrounds. It's one of the best places to see dolphins in the wild and also the best place on the New South Wales coast for whale watching between May and November.

Nearby at Nelson Bay are the Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Bight Sand Dunes). This area is the largest coastal sand dune system in the Southern Hemisphere stretching 32 kilometres with dunes reaching as high as 40 metres. There are many ways to explore Stockton Bight, on the back of a camel or in a 4WD, but none more thrilling than by sand boarding down the impressive steep slopes - this fun ride will be an experience to remember.
