Why come here?
Nelson Bay is the main town for Port Stephens and it would be hard to find anywhere better equipped for aquatic pursuits - plus a great array of shopping, accommodation and dining options.
On the town's doorstep, within the sheltered arms of the bay, there are safe, calm beaches that are ideal for small children, while the coastal beaches just a five-minute drive away are washed by booming waves.
The diving and snorkelling here is exceptional.
Just east of Nelson Bay, the tiny promontory of Fly Point is an aquatic reserve with prolific marine life.
Divers have another superb site just off the coast at Broughton Island, with such outstanding features as the 'Looking Glass', a split that runs through the middle of the island, crowded with marine life.
To the south of Nelson Bay, Stockton Beach has the country's largest coastal dune system, stretching for more than 30 km to the northern outskirts of Newcastle.
