Port Stephens - a blue water wonderland!

Port Stephens is a huge expanse of water, 2 times the size of Sydney Harbour and made up of many small comunities on it's northern, southern and western shores.
Unfortunately, VT only has the area "Nelson Bay", which is just one of the many towns in the area.
We are located 200 klms north of Sydney, approx. 2 1/2 hours drive

    Only once in your neck of the woods passing through as we headed north but would love to see more. How about a virtual tour sometime?

    How I got elected to cook on my vacation is beyond me!! I better get pretty hammered, so you better gets to sewing! That little one is Zilly, who is now an insufferable 8 years old, going on 35, running the 3 ring circus. ~
