What to do next?

So you have been sandboarding with 4WD Tours R US and it was AWESOME, like totally awesome!

And while you are in Port Stephens you want to see more and do more, after all it is spectacular here and you’re on holidays.

Why not head up to Mt Tomaree for epic views like this … it’s FREE!

Take the short walk to the summit of Tomaree Head, 161m above the Port Stephens entrance. As you hike the track, you’ll enjoy unparalleled views of idyllic Port Stephens and its coastline. From the top, you can even see as far as Cabbage Tree and Boondelbah islands – these nature reserves are the world’s only nesting sites for the endangered Gould’s petrel. 

When you reach the summit, enjoy panoramic views of Yacaaba Head, Cabbage Tree, Boondelbah and Broughton Islands from the north platform. From the south platform, views of Zenith, Wreck and Box Beaches, Fingal Island and Point Stephens Lighthouse will be sure to impress. Be sure to check out the historic World War II gun emplacements.

There’s a picnic table at the lookout, so if you have time, take a picnic lunch or some morning tea to enjoy as you take in the view. On the way back down, don’t forget to try Fort Tomaree walk.

You might even spot a while or two from the top, so remember to take your binoculars if you want to whale watch – the best time of year is between May and October (photo @jane_cara).

Whatever you do while you are here, we can’t wait to show you our backyard!

What are you waiting for? Come join us here in Port Stephens and have some fun!
