This marina was a great place a few years ago. It was vibrant and attractive. Not sure what happened but a few empty shops and some changes. Suspect rent prices are cause. It's still okay, but the rose coloured glasses are off....

A must visit in Port Stephens as there are a variety of good restaurants to suit all budgets including good old fish and chips at long established restaurants. Walking along the marina and checking out the boats and piers is worthwhile!!

Whilst a little too ‘touristy’ for me, the Marina never fails to give me something new every time I visit. From amazing emerald blue waters, different fishes, penguins, cormorants and even dolphins. People are really nice and friendly too. Such a lovely Marina and so...More
