I have come here many times now to eat at the various restaurants and walk by the water. They have a clown there that really entertains the kids.

When you visit Port Stephens, this is the place you should not miss to visit. It's the heart of Port Stephens. Marina, restaurants and bay walk are all in. Jump off for whale and dolphin watching.

Have been to nelson bay for 6 yrs. Now i know why. The marina is looking old and not well maintained. Restaurants are over priced. Food quality was poor if best. Come on management pull your head in.

A fairly typical holiday destination, but the marinas restaurants and shops have fallen behind and it's time for a refresh. We always enjoy our time here, everytime we visit we have a lunch or dinner, but we inevitably come away asking ourselves why they don't try and beautify the location. In any event, visit, drink, dine and enjoy the location.

Average shopping street, not much to do. Great view though. There are plenty of day tour companies available for your choices.

It is a great view. Besides, eating, drinking and shopping, the marina also has live music, markets, bike and watersports hire, cruise operators, kids playground and BBQ, plus a beach and many other events through out the year. More

we loved the marina in nelson bay, if it's sunny you can chill on the beach/grass areas, and if the weather is bad you can wander around the shops and restaurants
