Port Stephens | Sea, Sand and Seafood
Just a 40-minute drive north from Newcastle, Port Stephens has a shoreline like no other. The rolling golden hills of the Worimi Conservation Lands offer magnificent sand dunes with endless activities: speed down on sand boards; learn about Aboriginal culture on a quad bike cultural tour; or experience the incredible moving landscape on horseback. The fun isn’t just on land, Port Stephens' sparkling blue bay is home to pods of friendly dolphins you can encounter on swim and boat tours, while pristine inlets are perfect for snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding and fishing. Find premium seafood restaurants and luxurious resorts, or spend the night glamping in the gum trees at the new Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary.
Central Coast | Families, Farmers Markets and Fishing
The Central Coast has that easy holiday feel with outdoor adventures, quiet fishing spots and some of the state’s best beaches. About an hour south of Newcastle, it’s a place for sunset fish and chips on the wharf, paddling across calm waters and spotting kangaroos and pelicans. The natural beauty of the Central Coast is made for invigorating ventures. Get your adrenaline pumping with everything from quad bike treks, horse riding expeditions and ziplines whizzing over eucalypt forests. When it’s time to chill out, taste local produce at seaside markets, waterside restaurants and garden-set distilleries
Lake Macquarie | Snorkel, Surf and Sky-dive
Named after its main attraction — a 110-square-kilometre body of water and the largest saltwater lake in the Southern Hemisphere — Lake Macquarie thrills its visitors with a host of water sports and activities. Forty minutes south of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie is surrounded by lush mountains and national parks threaded with hiking and mountain bike trails, while its turquoise waters make the ultimate playground for surfing, snorkelling, diving, paddleboarding, fishing and boating. Get a bird’s-eye view of the natural beauty from up in the air, on a sky-dive, helicopter ride or acrobatic scenic flight.
The Hunter | Vintage, Verdant Hills and Verdelho
The elegant wines, acclaimed gourmet restaurants and boutique hotels dotted among flourishing vineyards make the Hunter Valley an iconic destination for discerning NSW locals and beyond.
