Port Stephens Day Tour with Dolphin Watching, Sandboarding, and Australian Wildlife
From USD 145.34
Overview

Get a comprehensive tour of Australia's North Coast, with all transportation included, on this full-day tour from Sydney. Check out the Stockton Bight sand dunes and Port Stephens while learning about the region from your guide. Stop at the Australian Reptile Park to see native wildlife, head out into Nelson Bay on a dolphin-watching cruise, and sandboard and 4-wheel in the dunes.

What to Expect

Roll out of bed and catch your early-morning tour bus right at the door to your hotel. Leave urban life behind via the Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoy the changing scenery as your guide takes care of directions and driving.

The day's first stop is the Australian Reptile Park to peruse informative displays and see some of nature's most interesting creatures. Move on to Port Stephens, for lunch (own expense) before departing on a dolphin-watching cruise in Nelson Bay. Learn about these creatures from your onboard guide and enjoy views of Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands.

Back on land, transfer for a 4x4 vehicle for an exploration of Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, some of which are more than 100 feet (30 meters) tall. Take advantage of sandboarding if you choose.

Your tour returns you to your hotel at the end of the day.

Comfortable coach, witty guide, great experience

Went for a day trip to Port Stephens and it was really amazing. The only bad thing I can think of is the slightly rushed itinerary where there wasn't sufficient time to fully enjoy each station (the sand dunes especially). Coach was well-equipped and very...More
