“There She Blows” – May to November 2018

From May to November is whale-watching season.  Experience one of the great natural wonders of the world, the annual migration of majestic whales along the spectacular coast of Port Stephens.   Come stay with us at Wanderers Retreat and spot these magnificent marine mammals from the near by headland at Boat Harbour where the whales come in close to the shoreline.  Or get up close on a special boat cruise.

Can’t see a package that meets your needs? Perhaps a passive package, view the sunset, dinner, maybe a picnic on Broughton Island with a flight out by helicopter?

Or would you rather a surf lesson, kayaking and sunbaking? Lunch overlooking the beach followed by dinner watching the sunset over the water?

Maybe you are a fisherman who wants to charter or hire a boat. A bushwalker who wants to know the tracks? Sandboarding? Scuba diving, advanced or first timer? All are available and much much more.

For our packages we usually have a minimum of 3 nights stay outside of school and public holidays, but hey, if that period does not suit, ask anyway and we will see what we can do.

Why not give a gift certificate for that special occasion? We offer accommodation deals with a discount of 10% off normal tariff rates.               The steps are simple:

     1. Decide the amount you would like to give as a gift,

     2. Call us on +61 2 4982 1702, advise details such as your personalised greeting, e-mail, Visa or Mastercard etc for processing, and,

     3. We e-mail the gift certificate which can be redeemed when desired subject to the minimum stay at the time. The full face value of your gift is deducted from the value of whatever length of stay is booked.
