Port Stephens is located just 2.5 hours north of Sydney with easy connections to local, state and international markets.
The Port Stephens economy has a diverse industry and employment base built around our incredible natural environment including the Tomaree National Park, the Worimi Conservation Lands and a 98,000 hectare marine park.
Almost 73,000 people call Port Stephens home and this is expected to grow to over 90,000 in the next 20 years. People come to our place for many reasons — whether to visit, raise a family, work in a thriving economy or retire.
Technology is increasingly enabling people to live the dream in Port Stephens — operating a business or working from home while still having access to work teams and clients across Australia via Newcastle Airport.
