Travelling is about living for the moment and seizing the day. Nothing says that like SUNRISE! We’ve got the best spot for you to see the daybreak.

Following that you’ll be saying goodbye to the mountain landscape and this part of the world, it’s time to head to the incredible Port Stephens.

Once there you can relax in the hostel pool or at the beach. Don’t forget to take a bodyboard from the hostel, they’re free!
