What to do in Port Stephens

  • Watch the whale and dolphins. The whales are a regular feature from May to November, and it’s very rare not to see at least a few dolphins.
  • Feed fishes and sharks at the Australian Shark and Ray Centre. Some daring people even hop in with the marine animals.
  • Ride a camel at Oakfield ranch, open weekends and school vacation times.
  • Take a 4WD tour.
  • Find a flat board and go sand-boarding. Easy going down, but considerable exercise when climbing the dunes.
  • See turtles at the Great Lakes Marine Park. Lucky travellers may see a few other rarer creatures as well.
  • Visit and sample the drinks at the Murrays’ Craft brewing Co. or Port Stephens Winery Tours. Could be the best way to end a day out. Look for a few unique drinks such as the whale Ale or coffee and cocoa flavoured brews.
  • Hire a jet ski.
  • Learn to scuba-dive.
  • Go Parasailing.
  • Oakville farm and Fauna World has Koalas and Kangaroos to see and feed.
  • There’s beach fishing and Deep Ocean fishing tours.
  • Just spend the day swimming, or surfing, or just at the beach in general.
