We recommend the hour long trip between Tea Gardens and Nelson Bay, NSW on a wooden ferry that cruises along from Tea Gardens, past Hawks Nest on the Myall River, navigating around islands and crossing the Port Stephens bay area to Nelson Bay. Approaching Nelson Bay we viewed in the distance, the opening to the sea, between the high rockface of Myall Lakes National Park on the north side and Tomaree Head/National Park on the south. We left Tea Gardens at approx. 10.00.am and did the return journey from Nelson Bay at 3.30.pm – a very nice day trip. Thanks to our Captain for an enjoyable cruise.
