Port Stephens - Sandboarding and Dolphin Watching


Rooooooadtrip.

Flicking through travel brochures, blogs and forums is a regular past time of mine since being away. I found out about the beautiful Port Stephens and a $45 trip to go sandboarding and dolphin watching.

The issue? 2 and a half hour drive from the city. No issue! - budget car rental. For 24 hours with a small extra fee for being under 25, we had hired a car, including fuel,between five of us for around £20 ($40) each.

We set off bright and early, myself and Hannah splitting the driving.

The drive was lovely and we were lucky enough to witness some beautiful scenery.

We arrived at the sandboarding location, next to Stockton Beach, signed ourselves in and hopped in the sand equipped buses.


The view of the dunes is amazing - blue skies, perfect sands...


We got to it straight away...


So much fun...


And the competition begun...



Rematch! No clear winner!


After sandboarding we made our way down to the bay to board our dolphin watching boat.


The views of Anna Bay's re beautiful...


And the dolphins were out playing straight away...


It was a boiling hot day, beautiful surroundings and several pods of dolphins.





We were all very happy with this, of course...


After our activities, we made our way back down to the small beach in the bay to catch a few hours of sunshine.


I couldn't get over how lovely it is...


We spent a few hours down at the bay before heading back to Stockton Beach to watch the sunset.




It was a perfect day and a great example of why its sometimes much better to plan a trip yourself rather than attending a company organised event.
