Staff were all super friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend paying the extra to get in the water for the feedings so you can be up close and personal with these amazing creatures.

Located just 20 mins drive north of Newcastle, adjacent to the entrance to RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle Airport, Fighter World is a totally ‘hands on’ experience.

Conveniently located adjacent to the main hangar, the Fighter Beans Cafe offers a range of snacks and light meals as well as cold beverages and steaming hot espresso coffee and of course free WiFi means you can stay abreast of what’s happening at home. Stay cosy inside or venture outdoors to enjoy the noise and action of an operational Air Force Base. The choice is yours. Make sure before you leave you visit the Fighter World Shop where you’ll find a wide range of books, souvenirs and models available. Fighter World is disable friendly and open every day (except Christmas Day) 10am to 4pm. Some COVID restrictions may apply.

Visited Fighter World with my wife. It was a great experience. They have a great number of Jets to look at and great displays. It was amazing watching Jet Fighters from the RAAF taking off and landing from the viewing platform. Staff were very friendly. Highly recommended.

Port Stephens Community Art Centre

This is a beautiful community art centre where one is spoilt for choice. Great selection of art works and various mediums from paintings, sculpture, pottery, mosaics, jewellery, crochet, seeing and glass work to name a few. Prices very reasonable for quality art works. Pleasantly surprised. The gardens surrounding and cafe looked lovely to had I more time. Purchased a gorgeous pottery lighthouse by artist Roger Rigby.

What an amazing place to visit! This is a must do while visiting the area. The farm is located a short drive from Nelson Bay, very easy to find. I arrived today with my travel group of 12 for the tour and lunch which was great value. We learnt so much about fish farming and hydroponics then had the most delicious baked Barramundi which melted in your mouth. The service was excellent considering the group size, thank you Nick and your great team for a memorable experience. See you with my next group mid February!

Took the kids here during the school holidays and had a great experience. It was comfortable, clean, the staff were friendly and it was a lot cheaper to take the whole family compared to the bigger competitors. Will be back again.
