Port Stephens Dolphin Watching Full Day Tour Departs from Sydney

 

One of the awesome guides will pick you up early morning and soon you'll find yourself going over the Sydney Harbour Bridge towards the mid north coast of New South Wales. The first stop is Walkabout Wildlife Park where you get up close and personal with Aussie wildlife! Pet a kangaroo, feed the farmyard animals and say G'day to the resident Emu! 

When arrive at Port Stephens, take a break for lunch (own expense) at Nelson Bay, the main town of Port Stephens. There are a few cute little souvenir shops around so feel free to have a browse and take in the local atmosphere. 

Then on board a boat to go dolphin watching! The region is home to over 150 playful bottlenose dolphins who are known to play around the boat. You can grab a complimentary coffee or tea and spot these grey beauties from the spacious viewing deck or jump in the boom net attached to the boat to get up close and personal. During June and October you can upgrade to whale watching cruise. The annual whale migration takes place around this time with plenty of whales playfully showing off some acrobatics as they make their way along the coast. 

After the dolphin time, go sandboarding at Stockton Beach! Jump in a big 4WD and cruise over the huge Anna Bay dunes to find the biggest drops possible to go down! Embrace the challenge, take a deep breath and whizz down huge the sand dunes on a boards especially designed to fly down sand!
