We really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable well equipped appartment. It is roomy with great views over the beach. Everything we wanted for a relaxing week chilling out, good walking and a brilliant base to see the Port Stephens and Newcastle area.

About the neighbourhood
Direct access to One Mile Beach patrolled surf beach from Beach House 7. Boat Harbour beach is perfect to launch your own boat, fish off the rocks around the beautiful bays or just enjoy the serenity of the beach. Just a few kms away is the awesome Stockton sand dunes. Explore by foot, camel or horse, in your own 4WD, on a quad bike or join a 4WD tour and sandboard down 40 metre high dunes! Awesome! Visit Tin City on the sand dunes, where they filmed Mad Max. Tour southwards until you uncover the Sygna Shipwreck from 1974, 23 kms south of Anna Bay. If you are into extreme fun, use a quad bike to discover the dunes on a guided 2-hour tour from the Lavis Lane, Williamtown or for a unique experience, ride on a camel along Stockton Beach.
How to get there
Boat Harbour is just 2.5 hours car drive from Sydney CBD and 20 minutes drive from Newcastle (Williamstown) airport. A daily bus service does depart to and from Sydney, however Port Stephens is best accessed by car. Car hire is available from the airport. Local bus services are available throughout the day to all locations in Port Stephens and taxis are also available. However, car is by far the best way to see all the wonderful sights and activities that Port Stephens has to offer.
