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.
