Destination Port Stephens (DPS) would not exist without you… its members. We are a non-profit, incorporated body supported by Port Stephens Council (PSC), owned by members and autonomously managed by a board of nine industry representatives. We conduct activities on behalf of our members; for the betterment of the region as a destination; to stimulate the local economy and ultimately provide the lifestyle benefits we have grown to love.
Funding for DPS marketing activities is sourced primarily from the annual investment from PSC and other strategic partners plus hard won grants but ultimately, it is up to us – the members – to support the organisation that, in the main, is responsible for the success of the visitor economy that is the life blood of our region.
Who can join?
Membership is available to all businesses and individuals based in Port Stephens or in Newcastle, Maitland or Great Lakes Local Government areas. Memberships extend to the end of the financial year
By restructuring the membership model we now have a flat membership fee of $200 per annum that everyone can afford! So now you can pick and choose from the smorgasbord of co-operative marketing opportunities to suit your business and your budget.
