Port Stephens and Nelson bay

Port Stephens National and Marine Parks

Tomaree National Park, Port Stephens–Great Lakes Marine Park, Worimi Conservation Lands. Watch koalas, go fishing, relax on a pristine beach.


TOMAREE NATIONAL PARK

Tomaree National Park near Port Stephens is a great weekend getaway. Explore the historical significance of Fort Tomaree on a school excursion, or go whale watching, walking to see koalas or fishing and have a tasty picnic lunch by the beach.
Tomaree National Park, jointly managed with Hunter Water Corporation, provides a magnificent backdrop to the coastal towns and villages of Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, Boat Harbour and Anna Bay. It’s the only place in NSW where you can see outcrops of the acid volcanic rock rhyodacite.
It’s an excellent spot for whale watching and offers a range of scenic walks, including the short Wreck Beach walk through coastal angophora forest and the longer Morna Point walk that comes alive with spring wildflowers. Keep your eyes out for koalas dozing high in the trees.
