Port Stephens is a favourite destination for Schoolies from New South Wales, particularly from Newcastle and the Central Coast. Nestled in a little beach-side cove named Shoal Bay, this destination has so much to offer for Schoolies celebrations.
A renowned experience for New Years Eve festivities, Schoolies in Shoal Bay is the perfect blend of a relaxed beach town with a lively nightlife. Often referred to as what Byron Bay was like 20 years ago, Schoolies in Port Stephens is the perfect place for year 12 graduates to be with their squad without the hectic crowds on the Gold Coast.
The postcard worthy beach is a popular spot to spend your days relaxing with friends before winding up for some fun when the sun goes down. Other things to check out include snorkeling with the turtles at Fly Point, Sand-boarding at Worimi, whale watching tours or even explore the bay on a kayak!
