Each year over the summer holidays, Port Stephens welcomes thousands of visitors who come to experience our magical beaches and bays, fresh seafoods, glorious weather, natural attractions and our friendly welcome.
Since the first Novocastrian holiday-makers headed for the peninsula on a dirt track one summer weekend several decades ago we’ve had a tendency to rest on our ‘summer laurels’ and assumed that, for a few weeks of the year, at least, it’s going to be busy busy busy… no matter what… so, marketing our summer experience has never made it onto the agenda. Until now!
It’s a competitive market and with so many destinations vying for the visitor dollar, we need to make the most of our “Summer Influx” and make sure our visitors go away raving about what a brilliant experience they had at Port Stephens.
We need our summer visitors to come back in Autumn, Winter and Spring… we need them to spread the word and tell their friends and families all about our beautiful piece of paradise and we need to give them the best holiday experience ever!
This summer in Nelson Bay, our smiles will be bigger, our welcomes friendlier, our streets cleaner, our service more attentive and the atmosphere more memorable…
