Though the beach is fantastic, its the amount of people wandering nude, very embarrassing going with a family with little kids.

Beautiful beach with 4wd entry. Saw 2 cars bogged. Drop your tyre pressure to 16-18 and take care. Very soft sand when we visited but lovely beach. Nudists around but big beach to enjoy your own space.

Dicovery Holiday Park would have cabins which will accomodate your family. Another is Big4 Holiday Parks. Port Stephens is a beautiful area.
