  • Only a few hours away from Sydney, Port Stephens and its 26 beaches is the perfect home away from home.
  • Visitors and residents can enjoy hiking, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing, and fishing all year round.
  • Owning your own Port Stephens luxury holiday home is now more affordable than ever, with Ko.

Port Stephens is a stunning region that is less than two-and-a-half hours drive away from Sydney. With a glittering harbour that’s twice the size of Sydney Harbour, it also boasts 26 beaches and is nestled next to the largest sand dune system in Australia. With a range of new Ko homes now available in the area, we thought it would be good to explore what Port Stephens has to offer.

The harbour and coastal areas of Port Stephens connect many towns in the area including Nelson Bay, Hawks Nest, Tea Gardens, Karuah, Fingal Bay and Anna Bay to name just a few. The area’s beaches are renowned for their beauty and there are many swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing and fishing spots along the coast and around the harbour.

If you need to take a break from the beach, the nearby hinterlands around Port Stephen offer a refined rural experience for visitors. Seaham is a popular starting point for a luxurious sojourn in nature and offers a variety of experiences for the urban farmer or budding chefs. You’ll be spoilt for choice with an abundant array of fresh local produce and artisan crafts and products to try.

With plenty of excellent cafes and restaurants around Port Stephens, many featuring fresh local seafood, there is something to excite any foodie. Throughout the year there are several festivals showcasing local food and produce, and regular events include the Port Stephens Surf Festival, the Tomaree Trail Run Festival and the Port Stephens Country Music Festival.

For lovers of nature, the Tomaree National Park is a great place to hike a trail, or visit the Port Stephens Lighthouse. Along the tracks, you’re likely to see kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. While in the water, you‘ll encounter dolphins and seals, or if you’re lucky you might even spot a humpback whale during their annual migration from May through to November. Cabbage Tree Island at the mouth of Port Stephens is the main breeding ground for the Gould’s petrel, which spends most of its life at sea. Conservation efforts on the island have led to an increase in the local population of this seabird in the past few decades.

The Worimi Conservation Lands includes the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, a 4,200 hectare shifting coastal sand dune system. Out on the dunes in certain areas, you can access guided safaris, tours and camping. Popular attractions include Indigenous quad bike tours that share stories, culture and heritage of the local Worimi people.

Other historical places to visit include Fort Tomaree, and Fort Scratchley in Newcastle also stores a lot of detail about the military history of the Port Stephens area. Williamtown Air Base is halfway between Newcastle and Port Stephens and has Fighter World, a popular museum dedicated to military aviation.

Getting to and from Port Stephens is easy. Newcastle Airport is just 30 minutes away by car, and Sydney is two-and-a-half hours drive along the M1 motorway.
