About The Adventure
Join us and explore Port Stephens on foot - what better way to discover the gorgeous beaches, local streets and hidden charms of this beautiful coastal enclave. We will start our walk at Fly Point Park and make our way along the foreshore, past Little Beach and along to Shoal Bay taking in the views over the ocean while we walk. Once at Shoal Bay we'll head up to Stephens Peak on a lesser known side track to find spectacular views across to Nelson Bay, Fingal Bay and Tea Gardens. What a top spot for morning tea! Retracing our steps back towards Nelson Bay, we'll finish with a wander through Port Stephens Native Gradens. Take your time through the gardens as your WEA hosts get a delicious lunch ready for you in the park looking over Nelson Bay .
