Full description
Travel over the Sydney Harbor Bridge towards the North Coast region of Port Stephens. With crystal clear waters, Port Stephens boosts over 26 pristine beaches, national parks, diverse marine life and allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. First stop is the largest sand dunes in the southern hemisphere where you jump in a big 4WD vehicle to ride over the huge dunes to find the biggest dunes possible so you can sand board down them! A real adventure and lots of fun! After lunch (own expense) at the Nelson Bay Marina where you can enjoy the local atmosphere join a whale watching cruise sailing out to sea to get close to these amazing creatures as they journey between Antarctica and the tropical Pacific islands. Keep watch for breeches, tail flaps and spy hopping when they take a good look at you! Be amazed as you cruise among the biggest creatures on earth. Learn more about these animals and the fight to protect them from hunting. Watch carefully to see the humpback whales playfully show off some whale acrobatics as they migrate along our coast.
