Is this the only place left on earth with 'coin only' parking metres. Be warned as it cost me $108 in fines. The shopkeepers will not give you change.... bloody nuisance! Lift your game Pt Stephens Council.

A friendly, car-free oasis of boutique shopping, variety of restaurants & cafes, great music at pub or from buskers or a commercial venue for hire for whatever you might require. Views are always pleasant. Playground for children. Good for paddle to cool down.

Very scenic and pretty at any weather. I did some shopping in the shops in the Marina. Nice walk around the Marina area with great places to stop and see the yachts.

It is a typical marina with bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. The moorings look like the start of Gilligan's Island (post 1990's can google ). Interesting to walk around, grab a meal or snack. Try the ice cream shop!

When you visit Port Stephens, this is the place you should not miss to visit. It's the heart of Port Stephens. Marina, restaurants and bay walk are all in. Jump off for whale and dolphin watching.
