Mar 17, 2009 - Our last campervan site in Nelson Bay, NSW

Tuesday March 17 We left the vineyard area of the Hunter Valley this morning and headed back to the coast to stay a couple of nights in Nelson Bay, a small town on the shore of Port Stephens, our last port of call before returning to Sydney. On the way in to Nelson Bay we explored along the coast and took a photo of Stockton Beach from Birubi Point. Stockton Beach has a claim to fame as being “the largest moving sand mass in the Southern Hemisphere”. It is quite remarkable how almost every place manages to find a unique aspect to boast...

Aug 7, 2007 - Seal Rocks to Nelson Bay, including a journey to the Hunter Valley.

Jeff The reputation of Seal Rocks as a wonderful place to watch wild life had not happened for us. Even the fishermen were reduced to eating only chips. Had we stayed longer in this very nice place it could have been different. On leaving the caravan park we drove the short distance to the headland, parked at the entrance to Myall Lakes National Park, and walked through to Sugarloaf Point where there has been a lighthouse since 1875. We took in the standard beautiful views from infront of the lighthouse before climbing the very steep slope...
