Port Stephens Hub
The Port Stephens hub has native bushland on one side and glorious beaches on the other. Needless to say, days here are filled with sun, sand, and sports. Daily activities include fitness in the park, bowling, cooking, and arts for the creative in you. Marvel at nature with whale watching trips, have fun with scavenger hunts, and give back to the community with beach clean-up activities. The hub’s fundraising committee is open for all to learn project management, while we cap off the fun with community access activities like bingo and disco events.
