Explore the park on your own to see wombats, kangaroos, platypus and crocodiles and visit Spider World where you can witness the spider Venom-Milking program.

Explore Nelson Bay Marina on arrival at Port Stephens and enjoy lunch (own expense) before boarding the Dolphin Watching cruise.

Cruise out of the marina in search for pods of bottlenose dolphins - See views of the local beaches, dramatic headlands and unspoiled waterways. There is always that chance to ride the boom net at the back of the vessel so bring your swimsuit in the warmer months.

Join a guided tour in a purpose built 4WD, explore part of the 32 km long unspoiled beach and feel the sand between your toes. The 4WD will then take you to the tallest sand dune where you will have the chance to try sand-boarding, a thrill you will not forget. Upon disembarking the 4WD tour, you will board your coach for return transfer back to Sydney.
