Port Stephens is one of the best locations in NSW to spot whales. And our NSW national parks in the Port Stephens region including Tomaree National Park, Myall Lakes National Park and Worimi National Park, provide some of the best vantage points from which to see these amazing mammals.

Whale watching in the Port Stephens region can be made that little bit more special by being able to actually stay overnight in a national park. That way you can enjoy whale sightings all day long from sunrise to sunset, knowing you can retreat just nearby, and in some truly beautiful settings.

Here’s just a few of the best in-park accommodation options in the Port Stephens region that are ideal for some land based whale watching action:

Cutlers Cottage

This charming heritage cottage is a great base from which to explore the natural splendour of Myall Lakes National Park. With absolute water frontage you can gaze across tranquil Two Mile Lake and it’s a perfect option for a family or group of friends looking for a nature getaway with some of the comforts of home. The fully furnished cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps up to six guests.

Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages

The award-winning cottages at Seal Rocks in the Myall Lakes National Park were built in 1875 and carefully refurbished to offer self-contained heritage accommodation in a truly spectacular location. Each of the three cottages features an outdoor area from which you can enjoy breathtaking panoramas, and are close to the nearby coastal town of Seal Rocks and the beaches and walking tracks of the park. The Headkeeper’s Cottage offers three bedrooms sleeping up to eight guests. The two Assistant Keepers’ Cottages offers two bedrooms sleeping up to six guests.
