Port Stephens sits just an hour north of Newcastle and boasts 26 golden beaches, perfect for swimming, surfing, snorkelling, kayaking and of course – camping. Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, Fingal Bay and Anna Bay are very popular areas over the peak periods and, once you see it for yourself, it’s easy to understand why! For an amazingly beautiful perspective of the area, have a go at conquering the 20 minute trek to the Mt. Tomaree summit -- the view is truly breathtaking. See if you can spot your campsite!
There are plenty of things to do in the area, whether it be indulging in one of several gourmet restaurants, shopping till you drop in the local boutique shops or experiencing the thrill of a whale & dolphin watching tour. Port Stephens is a true treasure and, surprisingly, is just 30 minutes from Newcastle Airport.
There’s no better way to explore the region than by bringing along your very own RV. However, if you don’t own an RV, Camplify is here to help. Our caravan hire and RV sharing community has been designed to connect holidaymakers with local owners of RVs in a secure, friendly environment.
If you hire a caravan, motorhome or camper trailer from a local owner in Port Stephens, they may even drop it off somewhere in the beautiful Nelson Bay for you. Less time setting up and settling in means more time to explore the local shops, walks, beaches and renowned seafood restaurants. Which one of the 26 incredible beaches is your favourite?
