Visitor Information Centre

At the heart of Port Stephens you'll find the Visitor Information Centre (VIC), where our friendly local staff will welcome you to Port Stephens, share a wealth of knowledge, and help you plan the perfect getaway!

We love visitors to our region. In fact, that's how most of us 'locals' landed here in the first place! The VIC team will invite you to "make yourself at home" in Port Stephens – they'll help you discover the coldest beer, the highest lookout, the best beach for a surf, the restaurant with the most amazing views... you name it, the VIC team will know it. And if they don't, they'll do their best to find out for you!

Find out more about where to stay and what to do on the Port Stephens Tourism website.
