Nelson Bay

Nelson Bay is a suburb of the Port Stephens local government area in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia. Relax by the water at Elizabeth Beach and Fingal Bay Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Tomaree Head and Bennetts Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Jimmy's Beach in Hawks Nest (about 1h 10 min away). Next up on the itinerary: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get great views at Barry Park, kick back and relax at Bagnalls Beach Reserve, and don't miss a visit to Gan Gan Lookout.

Expect a daytime high around 31°C in March, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
