Nelson Bay’s creative community gives the seaside town a number of popular community events.
The Sail Port Stephens is an annual yachting regatta held in the Port Stephens Marine Park and provides ample children’s activities, a full entertainment program and stunning ocean views. This makes it a fun day out for families, visitors and local residents alike. More regularly, the town’s thriving arts and crafts scene is showcased in the Tomaree Markets, held every second and fourth Sunday of the month. These markets help local artists display their distinctive talents and provides visitors with unique homewares, live music and more.
Nelson Bay’s rich history and friendly community have found a home in the Nelson Bay Golf Club, a 55-year-old family establishment. The club is frequently a centre for sporting events and also offers delicious dining options for its patrons.
To support such a prosperous events schedule, Nelson Bay accommodation offers a wide assortment of options, ranging from hotels to self-contained apartments.
