Top Adventure Activities in Port Stephens - Adrenaline Rush Amidst the Waves

Port Stephens is a famous for a bit of tranquillity, isolation and breathtaking views of the sea. But for adrenaline junkies, different adventures await in this beautiful spot in Australia.


Sea Kayaking

Port Stephens provides a variety of guided sea kayaking experiences worth trying. Whether you are an amateur or an experienced kayaker, you can paddle the azure seas around Port Stephens with these guided tours. Feel the liquid force of the sea waters and let sprinkles of foam embrace your face while you brave the blue-green depths with all your might. Of course, before setting off on your adventures look to find a centrally located place to stay at. There are several such Port Stephens hotels you can choose from with properties the likes of Oaks Lure amongst the options available.


Scuba dive with sharks

Visit the North Rock in Broughton Island for a rendezvous with the Grey Nurse Sharks. Book your diving adventure with organizers that care about the sharks as much as they care about your safety. Professional divers keep a single file and swim from area to area to allow ample space for sharks to glide through the waters. If divers swim in pairs without paying attention to where they go, the wall of bubbles created by this activity will drive the sharks away. Follow the simple techniques that the professionals teach you to enjoy a daring swim with these mysterious sea creatures.


Toboggan Hill Park

This is the ideal fun park for kids but grown-ups too can enjoy the thrill of hurtling down on a toboggan. Toboggan Hill Park comes with a 700 metre metal chute that a single sled can use at one time. Get on your toboggan and slide downhill with the wind in your hair. You can control the speed and balance. Once you've had your fill of tobogganing, go rock climbing or try handling a radio controlled car; end your fun day at Toboggan Hill Park making faces at the 'weird mirrors'.


Sandboarding at Stockton Beach

When in Port Stephens, you must try sandboarding. First, you tuck a smooth board under your arm and climb up a steep sand dune and then the fun begins. Jump on the board and cruise downhill on the silky sand. It might be a little messy but it definitely is a lot of fun.


Try the Thunda Raft

If you want to combine whale watching with the excitement of riding an inflatable boat amidst the sea waves, try the Thunda Raft. This particular vessel also used by the Water Police combines high tech capabilities and adventure as the trained crew skip the sea waves with expert sharpness, letting you embrace the thrill of jumping waves.


Go on a Hike

Mount Tomaree is a steep hike located in the Tomaree National Park. This daunting trail is well-worth the effort as you will be able to capture a beautiful view of Port Stephens once you climb to the top. Take a pair of binoculars if you are visiting between May to October for that is the season to watch out for humpback whales on their seasonal migration.
