Naturefest Port Stephens - Nelson Bay

Fingal Bay

Friday 01 June to Sunday 15 July 2018

Naturefest Port Stephens is an exciting program of events that promotes and celebrates the beauty and all things Mother Nature in Port Stephens!
With Tomaree National Park, the Worimi Conservation Lands (encompassing the monumental Stockton Bight Sand dunes) and a marine park covering 98,000 hectares... it’s little wonder they attract so many nature lovers to the region. Take a Marine Park day cruise to see their resident dolphins and between May and November be amazed by the passing parade of migrating Humpback whales - a magnificent sight. See koalas in their natural habitat, pat a kangaroo, take a coastal walk, discover scenic mountain bike trails, or climb Tomaree headland and be rewarded with a spectacular view!
The program is starting to take shape with key signature events to include the launch of the Whale season (June 1), World Environment Day - Dolphin Census (June 4), World Ocean Day (June 8), Shutterfest Photography Competition 2017 (June 1 - July 16) and the all-important Human Whale taking place on July 15. These key events will also be supported by regular nature based activities taking place over the duration of the event.
