About This Trip

Port Stephens is one of the most breathtakingly incredible natural places on earth. It has a huge abundance of truly ‘bucket-list’ worthy activities waiting for you to explore, discover and really experience. Feel the warm sand under your toes as you see the majestic dunes rise up, standing guard over the Worimi Conservation Lands... right before you hop on your sandboard and glide down the spectacular Stockton Dunes. 

 

Enjoy learning about history and culture, feeling that warm welcome from the locals. Hear the wild calls of playful dolphins and the songs of the humpback whales. Taste the fresh local produce, catch of the day and take in that crisp sea air. Relaxing in the evening and enjoying freshly caught seafood, wading in the crystal-clear waters before you kick back and relax in your 4-star private luxury accommodation.

highlights

With great surf breaks, amazing diving opportunities and countless beaches, a holiday in Port Stephens is all about sea, sand and wildlife. Your hand-selected resort is nothing less than spectacular. From the moment you arrive the friendly resort staff are there to assist you with all your needs. Your resort swimout studio, yes we said swimout, not only includes a king bed, modern bathroom and kitchenette but also has a swimout terrace allowing you to really take advantage of the incredible lagoon pool.

 

Salamanca Bay is the number one destination to reconnect with nature and as you cruise along the coast you will see why. Depending on the time of your travel you will either find yourself in winter admiring dolphins diving along the shores, watching whales make their way down the coastline and sea lions bathe in the sun. Or during the summer months you will dive in snorkel first to the stunning underwater wildlife, with a local guide and trainer who will help you discover this colourful burst of vibrant marine life. On your return, you’ll hoist the sails, relax on deck and take in some of the most scenic landscapes along the New South Wales coast, in style by a 54ft catamaran. 

 

Enjoy exclusive access to Aboriginal land via a quad bike tour, an interactive insight into the richness of culture and heritage as you experience sandboarding on the largest coastal sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere.
