Today you’re visiting the picturesque coastal town of Port Stephens. Heading out over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, your Driver Guide will provide expert commentary as you travel through the beautiful Hawkesbury Ranges.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the largest steel arch bridge in the world. Known to Sydneysiders as ‘the Coathanger’, the bridge was designed in 1924 to connect the northern and southern shores of the city.
A haven for nature and history lovers, the Hawkesbury region is situated among Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Parks. This morning your journey will take you through the evergreen landscape of its countryside and historic towns.
Australian Reptile Park
One hour north of Sydney you’ll stop on the Central Coast to visit the Australian Reptile Park. Here you can really interact with the wildlife, including a walk with Hugo, a giant but gentle Galapagos tortoise. You can feed the friendly kangaroos and visit Elvis, a huge saltwater crocodile. For something a little more intriguing and less interactive, you can witness snake and funnel web spider milking – the park is the only supplier of many venoms that are critical in saving hundreds of lives each year.
Now you’ll hop on your luxury boat and head out on the water in search of dolphins. The beautiful and gentle Bottlenose dolphins have several pods in the area so there is always a very good chance of seeing one, if not many. While enjoying the dolphins and the view from one of the three viewing decks, your hosts will be on hand to ensure a great day for everyone.
The Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Bight Sand Dunes) is the largest sand dune system in Australia. Stretching for 32 kilometres, this surreal landscape is barren of vegetation and has dunes that climb up to 40 metres high. You’ll travel on a purpose built 4WD to Stockton Bight where you can sand-board at your own pace or experience the thrill of high speed down the enormous dunes.
