Port Stephens National Parks

infoPort Stephens National Parks Info

There are a number of National Parks around Port Stephens, as well as in Port Stephens itself. Tomaree National Park is a large National Park stretching over the southern tip of Port Stephens. It is home to a host of plants and trees, as well as being home to a large koala colony.

Further east towards the Hunter Valley you'll come across the Goulburn National Park and the Wollemi National Park leading north towards the Barrington Tops National Park. The Goulburn National Park hosts vast sandstone ranges where many Aboriginal cave art sites can be found. Barrington Tops National Park offers rugged landscape stretching up towards Mt Barrington and Careys Peak, at a height of nearly 1600 metres above sea level. There are several walking trails through the lower subtropical rainforest and Antarctic beech forest, which are all well worth walking just to see the magnificent views.

North of Port Stephens is the Myall Lakes National Park. This can be reached by car as well as by boat. You can hire a boat at Nelson Bay and travel across Port Stephens to the Myall River, which leads directly into Myall Lake. The main settlement in the park is Bombah Point, where you can take part in several water activities on the lake. The National Park also offers some lovely beaches based around Seal Rocks to the north, as well as spectacular rainforest walks in Mungo Brush.
