Port Stephens Dolphin Watch, Reptile Park and 4WD Sandboarding Tour
This full day tour from Sydney visits the Central Coast including reptile park, luxury dolphin watching trip with boom net, 4WD Tour and sand-boarding adventure. Port Stephens is the perfect destination for a day trip away from the city. Just two and a half hours drive from Sydney this idyllic coastal region has plenty of exciting activities to fill your day.
Cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoy views of the harbour and Opera House. This morning your journey will take you through the evergreen landscape of its countryside and historic towns. A haven for nature and history lovers, the Hawkesbury region is situated among Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Parks.
One hour north of Sydney you'll stop on the Central Coast to visit the Australian Reptile Park. Here you can really interact with the wildlife, including a walk with Hugo, a giant but gentle Galapagos tortoise. You can feed the friendly kangaroos and visit Elvis, a huge saltwater crocodile. For something a little more intriguing and less interactive, you can witness snake and funnel web spider milking – the park is the only supplier of many venoms that are critical in saving hundreds of lives each year.
It's back on board now to continue on to the lovely Port Stephens. Often referred to as Australia's blue water paradise, Port Stephens' quiet golden beaches are surrounded by crystal clear water and neverending blue skies. The abundance of marine life here makes it the ideal location to spend some time on the water in search of dolphins and other amazing aquatic creatures.
Before your cruise you will have free time to enjoy some lunch in pretty Nelson Bay. You’ll have approximately one hour to purchase lunch (own expense) before you join the dolphin watching cruise.
Now you'll hop on your luxury boat and head out on the water in search of dolphins. The beautiful and gentle Bottlenose dolphins have several pods in the area so there is always a very good chance of seeing one, if not many. While enjoying the dolphins and the view from one of the three viewing decks, your hosts will be on hand to ensure a great day for everyone.
The Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Bite Sand Dunes) is the largest sand dune system in Australia. Stretching for 32 kilometres, this surreal landscape is barren of vegetation and has dunes that climb up to 40 metres high. You'll travel on a purpose built 4WD to Stockton Bite where you can sand-board at your own pace or experience the thrill of high speed down the enormous dunes.
