"Port Stephens" Nelson Bay by TheAndos

Nelson Bay Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 76 photos

We live on Port Stephens, 45 minutes north of Newcastle on the eastern coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is a beach resort in summer and a whale watching post in winter. This photo was taken in winter (July!) looking west from the heads, Shoal Bay is in the foreground. For more info on the locality try

Fingal Bay

This is Fingal Bay, home of Fingal Beach Surf Club and the isthmus out to the island. It is possible to walk to the lighthouse on the island at low tide but you should check with the locals first. During some seasons the sand bar gets washed away and it can be dangerous.
