Traveljunkieindonesia.com – I went on a media press trip to Port Stephens. At first I thought, I’ve never been to Port Stephens! I wonder what it’s like there?

The night before the event, I put some playlist into my player music, packed my bag, and all my gear. I was all ready to go.

After that, I felt very calm and I was REALLY looking forward to the next day. A bit like Lebaran really. Or like I was getting graduation ceremony next morning. THAT’S how excited I was.

And believe me, when an opportunity like this comes around, simple things can make me very happy indeed.

The next morning, We all woke up at 6am, breakfast, and check out from Sydney Harbour Marriot. Jumped into the the car and drove to Port Stephens.

My heart so quiet! It was so amazing. I got so much work done. I felt incredible! Ahhh. Simple things. travel blogger happy. Kissbye Sydney, hello Port Stephens.

Arriving at Port Stephens is EASY! It is approximately two and a half hour drive north of Sydney along the F3 Freeway. At the end of the F3, turn right at the roundabout, following the sign ‘Hexham and Pacific Highway’.

The road will veer to right and merge with the New England Highway after which you should merge to the left lane taking the sign ‘Taree and Pasific Highway’ which will direct you over the Hexham Bridge.

Look for the sign ‘Next Exit Richardson Road – Raymond Terrace/Nelson Bay’ to get to Lemon Tree Passage, Soldiers Point, Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, Fingal Bay, One Mile Beach or Anna Bay.

Continue along Richardson Road, following the Nelson Bay signs, until you reach a roundabout.
