Whether you’re a born and bred Port Stephenian, or you’ve succumbed to her irresistible charms and moved here to live, work or play - we all have one thing in common. We love this place. Just as the traditional owners, the Worimi people, have a strong cultural connection to this land - it is the rare and unique sense of place and pride of Port Stephens that forms part of our identity and is ingrained in the entire community.
Locals love it, visitors love it... let’s face it, everyone loves this Place we call home. The natural beauty, diversity, location and warmth (of both temperament and temperature) blended with the pure joy of living in a place where most just get to holiday - makes for an irresistible cocktail.
