A luxury catamaran, overnight fishing expeditions and a no-suit bush retreat are the newest additions to the newly created MICE Port Stephens portfolio.
Cruise operators Moonshadow Cruises have introduced a new, luxury 15m catamaran that is available for private charter for up to 49 people. Moonshadow Odyssey offers groups breakfast, lunch, cocktail or dinner cruises with dolphin watching all year ‘round and whale watching available from June to November.
44 year veteran of regional tourism, Tamboi Queen Cruises, have launched a new overnight extended fishing charter adventure aimed at anglers chasing game fish like marlin, mahi mahi, snapper, jewfish and kingfish. Groups of up to six people fish off a custom-built catamaran with the full sonar and 3D cartography fit out and then sleep and dine on the 18m ‘mother ship’ that is anchored in a cove off Broughton Island.
For corporate groups that want to de-suit in a relaxed bush setting, The Retreat Port Stephens is offering function space, self-contained cabins, a pool, open spaces and camp fires for groups of up to 60 guests. In a surprise bonus, the retreat backs onto the biggest sand dunes in Australia with dune sliding, camel walks and quad bikes tours within easy reach.
