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.
Weekdays 9am to 3pm
Explore Port Stephens $5 to $15
In this program, we’re going to focus on the beautiful waterways at our doorstep. We’ll keep our waterways tidy with beautiful beach walks and collecting swept-up netting, fishing, snorkelling, beach craft, visits to our local coast guards and even a trip to feed the stingrays at the famous Irukandji Shark and Ray centre.
We’ll spend the next 12 weeks building our microbusiness so we can start selling to our local community. All funds raised from this program supports the purchase of new activities and items for our hub.
