By

Summer is escaping us, make the most of the warm weather and head to Port Stephens to soak up some sun at these beautiful beaches.


Shoal Bay Beach

Well this is a beautiful part of the world, an idyllic destination for visitors and locals alike. There are a few great eateries just near the beach and the renowned Shoal Bay wharf for some jetty jumping.


Fingal Bay Beach

A local favourite that’s perfect for swimming and catching a wave. After your refreshing dip, bring your camera and take the 30 minute walk along the white sandy beach before relaxing at the cafe or grabbing a take away coffee, burger or ice-cream.


One Mile Beach

Home to rockpools for adventure and exploring. One Mile stretches along a vast amount of coastline which means plenty of sand and water to surf, boogie board or simply try to get that perfect tan. Great milkshakes at the little takeaway.


Corlette Beach

There’s no better place than Roy Wood Reserve at Corlette on the high tide. A small calm water bay with a picnic area to cook a snag so grab an esky and a chair and watch the sun drop behind the horizon. Great for kids.


Boat Harbour

A private cove inside of Tomaree National Park. Featuring a lovely, secluded beach, it’s a great area for swimming and snorkelling on a sunny day and is a wonderful place for a family day out by the sea.

Selling the Hunter to the world-Airport_news

Yesterday, more than 30 tourism professionals, representing 19 businesses, attended two workshops hosted by Newcastle Airport.

We had representation from 19 local tourism businesses, proving there is a real desire, not to mention the need, for tourism operators in the Hunter to become 'export ready' for rapidly growing Asian markets.

The workshops were facilitated by Newcastle Airport because we wanted to help our local businesses be ready for when the Asian market lands in our region, and we are committed to being the airport the region deserves and helping to grow the visitor economy in our region.

With inbound international arrivals to Australia set to grow from 8.4 million to 12.3 million in 2025, coupled, with Destination NSW's strategic focus to send visitors our way with more frequency, what yesterday's workshops showed was there are now more tourism operators on the right path to support the influx of international tourism set to fall upon the Hunter.

During the workshop, attendees engaged with export marketing tourism professionals from Australian Attractions and learned about the inbound market to Australia and NSW, the traditional marketplace and commission structures, online and dynamic pricing, how to work with inbound tour operators, and what their business needs to do to become ‘export ready’.

The Asia Export Ready Workshop is part of Newcastle Airport’s commitment to develop the region as a highly-desired destination, not only by Novocastrians and Sydney-siders, but also by international and interstate visitors.
