What You Can Expect Port Stephens 2 Day Trip with Dolphin Watching, Sandboarding, and Australian Wildlife Australian Reptile Park Enjoy a trip to the North Coast, traveling to Port Stephens and the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, on a 2 day guided tour from Sydney. Check out the wildlife at Australian Reptile Park, take a dolphin-watching cruise from Nelson Bay, experience 4-wheeling and sandboarding at the sand dunes, and soak up gorgeous scenery all along the route. Accompanied by a guide, enjoy views of kangaroos, koalas, Tasmanian devils, bottlenose dolphins, and other marine life for a memorable outdoors experience on Sydney's doorstep. Get an early start with morning pickup from Sydney, then head north in a comfortable climate-controlled vehicle, leaving the city via Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stop at the Australian Reptile Park, located about one hour's drive outside of Sydney. Walk through informative displays that showcase a variety of species, including Australian native animals such as Tasmanian devils, platypus, wallabies, and wombats. After approximately 45 minutes at the park, continue your scenic drive to Port Stephens, stopping in Nelson Bay where you have about one hour on your own for lunch (own expense) before taking your afternoon dolphin cruise. Enjoy a 1.5-hour afternoon dolphin-watching cruise that takes you directly to the best spots for sightings of wild bottlenose dolphins. Learn about the playful creatures from your onboard guide and enjoy fantastic views of the Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands as well. Bring your swim gear as there are opportunities to take a dip or ride in the boom net. Your cruise also provides complimentary tea, coffee, and biscuits. Back on land, a 4WD-vehicle picks you up for an adventure at the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes. Ride off-road around the expansive landscape of dunes, which are part of Australia's biggest sand dune system, with some measuring more than 100 feet (30m) tall. You can also try sandboarding down the dunes. Spend about one hour at the sand dunes, then reboard your coach for your return drive to Sydney. Itinerary
