“Great Park - fantastic views from the summit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Loved the place. The waters of Port Stephens are crystal clear and surround Tomaree Head. The park is very well set up and exploring some of the WWII gun emplacements was good. The climb to the lookout is well thought out and the views WOW!

“The view is outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

easy trail walk, about 1K with stairs and steep hills. It is completely doable for any size. and once you get to the top the views are so very worth the walk up!

“Ferries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The ferries are great for getting round the harbour, they are very regular and you can hop on and off at different place's,on a sunny day there is nothing better than sailing round the harbour.

“Amazing views from here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Great hill to climb. The Ozzies have the best walkways in the world so its an easy climb. you get fanatasic panoramas across thecounrty and the Tasman Sea. You could see whales breaching in the distance. Take binoculars to get th best view.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Love the walk up, good work out and a wonderful view when you hit the top. The panorama of the beaches out to Fingal and up to Nelson bay are wonderful.
