Diving in Port Stephens

Located in New South Wales, in the township of Nelson Bay, you will find the Port Stephens Area, a large bay famous for it being an important spot for shore dives, boat dives, and wreck dive sites. Visit ‘Halifax Park’ for some thrilling reef diving. In Port Stephens you will see thousands of fish in a very colourful sponge garden. Broughton Island is renowned for its “Looking Glass”, a spot where you can dive through an arch in the rock and that is surrounded by grey nurse sharks.
