Our region has much to offer.....
Port Stephens is one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations, and for good reason. It is a region of breathtaking natural beauty, with unspoilt native bushlands, golden sands, clear water and blue skies. And whilst the present inhabitants welcome visitors to the area, they encourage everyone to respect and care for our natural environment, wildlife, native habitat, indigenous culture and European heritage.
Within an hour’s drive of Port Stephens you can be right in the heart of one of Australia’s finest wine growing regions. An easy day’s outing from Le Chateau can have you tasting some of the best red and white wines in the country, enjoying a meal at one of the many renowned restaurants or boutique cafes scattered around the vineyard region, sampling from the smelly cheese factory, or strolling through the famous Hunter Valley Gardens.
Whatever your interest – be it an adrenalin adventure or simply a recuperation from the frantic pace of day-to-day life – this blue water paradise is for you.
