The Area

Although Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens are destinations in their own right, there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas.

The towns are perfectly positioned between other major tourist destinations such as:
the sprawling vines of the Hunter Valley
the incredible diversity of the Myall Lakes National Park
and the waterways of Port Stephens.

Regular ferry services run between Tea Gardens and Nelson Bay, connecting the towns with wider shopping opportunities and additional services.

For those who want a little adventure on the high seas there’s whale watching, fishing charters, a trip to Broughton Island or dolphin-watching cruises. So whether you live locally or are visiting, take the time to explore the region – there’s plenty to see and do in all directions.
