Experience the perfect escape to nature Looking for a luxury get away? Look no further! We have the perfect place for you to rest your head - from dawn to dusk, this will be an experience like no other. Set in 8 hectares of stunning bushland and nestled on the edge of the magnificent One Mile Beach and Worimi Conservation Lands sand dunes, Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary offers the best of both worlds. We’re close enough to experience the abundance of sights and activities Port Stephens has to offer, yet secluded enough to enjoy the native bird and animal life which have made their homes in the surrounding wetlands. Our Deluxe 4 Star Glamping tents offer you the perfect place to rejuvenate while enjoying a unique nocturnal experience. Wake up with the koalas in their spectacular natural bushland setting and enjoy everything that our Koala Sanctuary has to offer. If glamping is not for you, we also have a range of accommodation — from Deluxe Studio Rooms to our One Bedroom Deluxe Suites. These offer a more conventional stay, so you can experience the koalas’ natural setting while taking in the stunning views of our beautiful bushland environments.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed in connected suites with our family recently. Staff very friendly and helpful throughout from reception through to the housekeeping staff. The walk through to Samurai beach takes about 20min , half of which is along sand track which is well used by trail bikes and 4WDs so good to keep small children close. The beach itself is a bit open and is legal naturist beach and together with the 4WD traffic not a great place to hang out with kids. The park itself is quiet and well maintained. There were only 4 BBQ hotplates but was no problem getting access to one while we were there. The koala tour was quite interesting and were able to see a few sleepy koalas in the trees.. The onsite cafe is good for a morning coffee but otherwise offerings were quite limited. The rooms were comfortable, modern and clean and provided a comfortable sleep. They are equipped with TV which we didn't get around to watching. The kitchenette is very basic with just a fridge, microwave and toaster. There is no hot plate or sink although basins are provided for washing up for a bit of the camping experience . A little over priced for the quality but still quite comfortable and good to know some of fee is going to help the koalas . All in all family enjoyed ourselves and was a good base for exploring the area.

We loved everything about this place. We stayed in the motel style rooms as all the glamping tents were booked. The room was fabulous. Large room, very clean, comfy bed. Really nice touch supplying a very substantial breakfast basket (whole loaf of bread, big tub of yoghurt, lots of juice and milk and condiments). Was pleasantly surprised. The Koala Sanctuary is steps away. The private morning tour (included) had the koalas awake and roaming around, was wonderful to see. Tour guide was also fantastic. Great pool to cool off at the end of the day. 5 min drive into town for dinner. Only negative was the cafe were very very slow and the food was average (I believe run by an external company). Have raved about this place to friends back in Sydney. A real gem!

Simply best of the best. We've stayed in the glamping tent. It was clean, cool, all amenities prepared (and more!!). The pool was really nice, staff were very helpful and welcoming too. Highly highly (yes I wrote it 2x) recommended.

Stayed one night in a deluxe glamping tent (#9). This is the only accommodation type I would stay in here as we could spot 5 koalas while sitting on the outdoor deck. Wish we took binoculars. Facilities were clean and comfortable - shower was strong and hot. Continental breakfast in room - bread/spreads/muesli/yoghurt/milk/juice Small hamper included - wine/cheese/crackers 45min tour included in the morning. Great for a short romantic getaway and although accommodation is a bit pricey happy the $$$ are going to the koala hospital.
