Salamander Bay short term accommodation is central to all Surf and Bay Beaches in Port Stephens
Nelson Bay is just a 7km drive to the east, and is the main town of the Port Stephens region. The calm beaches of the bay are perfect for families to relax, while the coastal beaches as great for surfing and body boarding.
Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay are home to some of the best beaches in the Port Stephens area. There are over 20 beaches including sheltered bays and open ocean beaches which gives you plenty of option for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing and walking.
If you enjoy diving and snorkelling, the tiny promontory of Fly Point is an aquatic reserve. Also Broughton Island where you’ll find what local divers call “The Looking Glass”. A split that runs through the middle of the island and is alive with marine life. There are lot of places for snorkelling and diving for all experience levels. So you don’t need to worry about missing out.
In Nelson Bay you’ll also find the country’s largest coastal dune system. It stretches for more than 30 km to the northern reaches of Newcastle and to the Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse.
Shoal Bay and Anna Bay
Another 2 km to the east, you’ll find Shoal Bay which is an excellent bush walking area. We recommend the walking tracks in Tomaree National Park, which is a 20 km strip between Shoal Bay and Anna Bay. Shoal bay is a great place to head out for a meal and the base for fishing trips and cruises around Port Stephens.
Your Salamander Bay holiday rental is only a 15 minute drive (11 km) to Shoal Bay and an 8 minute drive (7.7 km) to Anna Bay.
Whale Watching and Dolphins
An absolute must-do while you’re staying at Condo 105 is to head out on a whale watching cruise. If you are staying during the season, Port Stephens region is on the annual migration track. You can see whales heading north in June and July. Then south again in September to November. The area is also home to large pods of dolphins that you can see from dolphin watch cruises. Or even while paddling around on a kayak in the bay.
Another must do is swimming with the dolphins. There is only one wild dolphin swim permitted in NSW, and it is in the Port Stephens/Great Lakes Marine Park. The organisers will take you offshore on a 50-ft ocean catamaran. Where you will get the chance to swim with Short Beaked Common Dolphins and Oceanic Bottle Nosed Dolphins. This is an amazing experience not to be missed.
Salamander Bay short stay rental is only a 10 minute drive (7 km) to Nelson Bay d’Albora Marina which is base for your whale and dolphin watching adventures.
Salamander Bay holiday condo is a great base for Adrenaline Junkies

Or spend the day on a quad or join a 4WD Safari Tour.
If you are visiting us over a weekend, make sure you book yourself in for a camel ride on the beach. You can book in for an hour long sunset ride, which is a great way to finish off the day. After your camel ride, head back to Horizons Resort and sit back with a glass of wine watching the animals come out at dusk.
Tomaree National Park
If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on soil, then you can often see both dolphins and whales from Tomaree National Park Headland.
Tomaree National Park is the backdrop to the towns and villages of Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, Boat Harbour and Anna Bay. It offers coastal bush land, forests and over 20 km of rocky coastline and white sandy beaches. Keep your eyes open for outcrops of the acid volcanic rock, Rhyodacite. It’s a great place for a picnic or a walk. In safe conditions you can walk out to Fingal Island and the lighthouse.
