Know More about this tour

Travel by air-conditioned coach over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge as you make your way to the picturesque coastal region of Port Stephens. Keep an eye out for the Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Park as you travel through the stunning Hawkesbury region viewing natural sandstone, waterways and Eucalypt forests.

Located a short 2.5-hour drive from Sydney, Port Stephens is one of Sydneys favorite holiday destinations. Popular due to its warm weather, crystal clear water, boutique shopping and incredible dolphin and whale watching.

Head to Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, Australias largest sand dune system stretching 20-miles (32km) in length from Stockton to Anna Bay. Stockton Beach boasts a mix of surreal landscape and history barren of vegetation and home to a number of shipwrecks. Once serving as a bombing and gunnery range during World War Two, Stockton Beach is now popular for its sand dunes, some reaching 131-feet (40 meter). Travel by purpose-built 4WD to Stockton Bight where youll spend 1-hour enjoying the thrill of high speed sandboarding down the enormous dunes.

Next, travel approximately 30-minutes to Nelson Bay, another stunning beachside stop to explore the village and waterfront marina. Here youll have time to grab lunch at one of the local restaurants (own expense) before boarding your dolphin watching cruise.

Hop aboard your 1.5-hour dolphin watching cruise in search of the majestic and gentle bottlenose dolphin. There are many dolphin pods in the area so there is always a high chance of seeing one.

6 Traveler Reviews

  • Great day trip. Driver was exceptional.

  • Felt rather flat after the day, sandboarding is fun for about 90 seconds, the guide was very regimented, felt he was reading from a book the whole time. The cruise looking for dolphins was very average, even seeing them didn't really make the boat worthwhile. Not the best tour to do while in Sydney

  • Excellent day well worth the long bus journey

  • Saw just a few dolphins but amazing tour nonetheless. Sandboarding was quite fun and quite a good workout as well.

  • This trip was fun. I wish there was more time to shop in Port Stephens.

  • Pick-up and drop-off points are convenient. The driver was nice and clearly introduced the sight seeing spots. The coach bus was clean and comfortable.
