Port Stephens

Port Stephens[Magical sunrise at One Mile Beach]

Our trip to Port Stephens was fantastic! It’s nice to be reminded of how therapeutic it is to hang out by the water. We stayed at a lovely resort with great water views and walking distance to d’Albora Marinas. Saturday was fully dedicated to the triathlon which went great! The same night we went out for dinner to The Little Beach Boathouse (highly recommend) and indulged on fresh local oysters and seafood followed by a chocolate fondant. The next morning we went exploring some of the bays and beaches in the area. Shoal Bay was our favourite and so we’ve agreed to stay there the next time we are in Port Stephens. One of the highlights was quad biking on sand dunes – great fun! By the time we got home, it felt like we had just returned from vacation.
