Exploring Nelson Bay

The coastal resort community of Nelson Bay shares its name with the picturesque bay along the south shore of Port Stephens. Nelson Bay stands roughly halfway along the coast of New South Wales, 260 or so kilometres north of Sydney and 70 kilometres northeast of Newcastle, the city with the nearest rail station. The bay has become a popular holiday retreat because of its peaceful beaches, exceptional scuba diving, and countless opportunities for dolphin and whale watching.

Sightseeing in Nelson Bay

- Nelson Head Lighthouse


Instead of a typical tower, Nelson Head Light's four kerosene lamps shone through an octagonal lantern room window when this unusual lighthouse was first built on Nelson Bay's northeast corner in 1875. The original kerosene lamps were replaced first by electric light in 1946, then by a solar powered lantern in 1995. The lighthouse welcomes guests daily.


- Tomaree National Park


The best views of this stunning park are found at the summit of Tomaree Hill, which can be reached along a steep bushwalk whose track is paved. None of the WWII artillery guns displayed in the park have ever been fired towards enemy forces. The park's more than 20-kilometre long coastline is dominated by beaches of white sand and rocky scenery. Visitors can easily walk toward Fingal Island's historic ruins and lighthouse.


Transportation in Nelson Bay

Apart from taxis, the only major public transit serving Nelson Bay and the rest of Port Stephens are Port Stephens Coaches buses which make the 70-kilometre journey between this coastal community and Newcastle. Port Stephens Coaches also operates a regular pick-up service from Newcastle Airport, less than a half-hour drive from Nelson Bay, and from Newcastle Railway Station.
