The Itinerary

One of our awesome guides picks you up early in the morning and soon you find yourself going over the Sydney Harbour Bridge towards the mid north coast of New South Wales. Our first stop is Walkabout Wildlife Park where you get up-close and personal with Aussie wildlife! Pet a kangaroo, feed the farmyard animals, and say G’day to the resident emu!


When we arrive at Port Stephens, take a break for lunch (own expense) at Nelson Bay, the main town of Port Stephens. There are a few cute, little souvenir shops around so feel free to have a browse and take in the local atmosphere.


Then, we board a boat to go whale watching! The Australian whale watching season runs from June to October so if you get the chance to book this tour, you’re in luck! Plenty of whales are playfully showing off some acrobatics as they make their way along the coast for their annual migration!


After our whale watching cruise, we take you sand boarding at Stockton Beach! We jump in a big 4WD and cruise over the huge Anna Bay dunes to find the biggest drops possible to go down! Embrace the challenge, take a deep breath, and whizz down huge sand dunes on a boards especially designed to fly down sand!


Our Port Stephens whale watching day tour departs every Wednesday and Saturday from Sydney during whale season (June – Oct). Looking forward to having you on our tour so we can show you an amazing time on this day trip to Port Stephens from Sydney.
