On May 11th 1770 Captain James Cook while mapping the Eastern Coast of the ‘unknown southern land’ discovered a ‘low rocky point’ which was named for his Secretary of the Admiralty; Port Stephens. Nestled a short 20 minute drive from Port Stephens lies the small township; Nelson Bay. Just like many areas Nelson was named as a tribute to HMAS Lady Nelson. Like many coastal cities it boasts an array of activities such as whale watching (season permitting), all year round dolphin tours, fishing boats that are available for private or commercial hire and of course plenty of sand.The Girl with the Rose Tattoo
