      Port Stephens Whale Watching

      Your adventure begins early in the morning as one of our expert guides picks you up and takes you over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge towards the beautiful mid-north coast of New South Wales.

      On the way, we make a quick stop for refreshments before heading straight to Birubi Point. Here, you’ll hop on a 4WD vehicle and cruise over the vast sand dunes of Anna Bay, finding the biggest drops possible to go down. Take a deep breath and embrace the challenge as you whizz down the dunes on boards specially designed for sandboarding.

      After an adrenaline-filled morning, it’s time to break for lunch (at your own expense). Then, we’ll take you on a whale watching adventure that you’ll never forget. From June to October, humpback whales make their annual migration along the Australian coast. Get up close and personal with these majestic creatures as they show off some acrobatics and playfully make their way along the coast.

      Back in Nelson Bay, you’ll have some free time to explore the local shops, buy an ice cream, or souvenir and take in the relaxed, friendly coastal atmosphere. Finally, we’ll take you to a lookout with breathtaking views over the coast and hinterland looking north along more stretches of pristine beaches.
