Whale Tails

Built by Atlantis Port Stephens, three fibreglass whale tails add vibrancy to the Nelson Bay foreshore at d'Albora Marina.

The whale tails were originally built and installed for Naturefest 2016, but were such a hit that they remain a key part of the marina's open space to this day. Atlantis Port Stephens is a social enterprise located in Salamander Bay, with a goal to promote conservation through education of our wonderful and unique marine life.


There are three whale tail sculptures located at d'Albora Marina in Nelson Bay, along the foreshore.
