What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover the beautiful coastal region of Port Stephens on this affordable day tour from Sydney!

Port Stephens is home to pristine waterways, golden sandy beaches and ecologically-diverse marine national parks. On this tour, you get to see it all! You start by crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and travelling north over the Hawkesbury River.

Your first stop is the Australian Reptile Park, where you can interact with the wildlife, including Hugo, a giant but gentle Galapagos tortoise. Hand-feed friendly kangaroos, see cuddly koalas and visit Elvis, a huge saltwater crocodile.

You then continue up to Port Stephens to board a dolphin-watching cruise. There are many pods of bottlenose dolphins in this area, so there is a very good chance of seeing one, if not many. In summer months, you can have fun in the boomnet that is dropped into the water – great for kids!

You then head to the Stockton Sand Dunes and take a ride in a purpose-built 4WD vehicle to the largest sand dune system in Australia. Experience the thrill of high speed sandboarding down the enormous dunes. Then it is time to head back to Sydney, no doubt exhausted from a day of activities.
