There is a nice walk to Tomaree Headland and up to the Lookout (very steep) and World War II gun emplacements. Both really worth a visit through the National Park. There are two lookouts, one facing south and the other north, along with stunning views of the town.

A well paved walk with beautiful views along the way and at the top. The gun battlement was also interesting to visit. A must-do in Shoal Bay.

Totally worth the 4:30am wake up to witness sunrise over the most amazing view in Port Stephens.

The track is easy to follow and very well done but it was a little steep on the way up so would recommend for over 5 year olds and no injuries.

Can go anytime but would highly recommend sunrise or sunset.

Only downer was the lack of clear signage to follow.

Won’t regret!!

A great say hike. Sensational views on the way up and spectacular at top. The path is well maintained comprising of footpath, well graded track and steps and some metal steps and walkways. So nice and even. Just basic fitness to make it up. . What a wonder Port Stephens is.

We see this as the signature walk of the area. Starts from a car park towards the end of Shoal Bay. Unusually, the trail map is placed around 50 metres down the track. The trail is well marked, mostly paved and there are frequent trail maps at strategic locations along the walk. Bear in mind there are a number of stairways, rough ground areas and no water en-route, so make sure you’re prepared. The spectacular views from the top across Shoal Bay, towards Final Bay and Jimmys Beach right around to Yacaaba Headland make the effort worthwhile, as do the historic information boards.

This is a great walk, the beginning is the hardest, so take your time if needed. Then when you start going up the steps it gets easier and once you start seeing the views you forget you are exercising. Very pretty reward when you get to the top.

Climbed Mt Tomaree again, this time with my wife with arthritis. Took our time and there’s are plenty of places to stop and rest. The track is well formed and maintained. The sense of achievement on my wife’s face was worth every minute we climbed. The view is amazing and the area is so picturesque. A ‘must do’ item on every visitors list.

The track was well paved & maintained with sturdy steel structure steps in places. Not a walk for the feint hearted as it is quite steep. Good parking availability at the bottom. Views were magnificent & recommended that you take the time to visit the WW2 bunkers & gun posts. Interesting history in this part of Australia.

We did not walk the track to the top as the path was under repair but did walk around to the point and the views were excellent of the entrance to Port Stephens.

Tomaree Mountain Lookout with a stunning 360 degree view of the surrounding bays and beaches, what a sight to behold.

This is a lovely and relatively easy climb... at least compared to most of the mountains we climb 🤪
There is a nice series of metal catwalks and stairs that work there way to the top.
