A message from our Mayor

Mayor Ryan Palmer smiling outside Council chambers

Welcome to our unique and beautiful part of the world!

Here at Port Stephens Council, we’re renowned for growing our economy. Our ‘can do’ attitude and innovative approach has won awards and garnered the attention of local, national and multinational organisations.

Like others around the world, our community has felt the impacts of COVID-19. I’m proud to say our rapid response program Restart Port Stephens has provided relief for many while highlighting our organisation’s agility. Working closely with business and community, we have adapted to the challenges and prepared well for recovery and growth as the tide turns.

As we emerge from our pandemic pause I invite you to share in our inevitable prosperity and discover for yourself why Port Stephens is truly a land of opportunity.
