Located about two and a half hours north of the Sydney Metropolitan Area is an aquatic lovers paradise. This paradise has gained a lot of attention over the past decade, and it has become a tourist mecca for party goers, families and the occasional weekender. Port Stephens is the name and being an aquatic paradise is its game.

Rather than being just a single city or municipality, Port Stephens is more so a region that’s located on Australia’s East Coast. It hosts an astounding harbour that’s much bigger than Sydney’s, and this harbour gives vacationers up to 26 different beaches and bays. The “blue water paradise” is its nickname, and it provides some of the best aquatic activities on earth such as:

  • Deep Sea Diving
  • Parasailing
  • Scuba Diving
  • Fishing
  • Surfing
  • Swimming
  • And more

Port Stephens’ pristine environment is its very on natural stage. The area is loaded with rolling hills, sandy beaches and bike paths. This gives you an up close and personal experience like none other.
