The most picturesque picnic area in Port Stephens
In the coastal town of Port Stephens, there's no lack of choice when it comes to stunning oceanside spots to choose from for a great day by the water. A little gem I stumbled across, on a drive to find a quiet spot, was the pristine Conroy Park Foreshore located at 70 Sandy Point Road, Corlette.
Just a short drive from the popular Salamander Bay, Conroy Park is a fantastic place to escape the crowds and have a picnic or fun-day-out with friends and family. Based on Sandy Point Road, there is plenty of free car parking available at the reserve with quick access to the waters edge.
Once you set foot on the white sand you are greeted by effortlessly blue and crystal clear water!
The whole coastline of Port Stephens belongs to the Great Lakes Marine Park and is a protected zone, which as a result gives this spot an awe-inspiring underwater visibility range that makes swimming, snorkeling, paddle-boarding or kayaking at this park so incredible.
Apart from the extensive range of water activities you can enjoy on the foreshore, the park itself is well equipped for a fun day outdoors. The park has a large exercise playground, BBQ's, seating areas, public showers and amenities.

So whether you're after the perfect picnic spot, taking the dog on a picture-perfect walk, or you just want to enjoy the great outdoors, Conroy Park's foreshore has got you covered.
