Buy a gift voucher for some fun in the sun
Are you stuck for a Christmas present for someone who is hard to buy for? Are you looking for a gift voucher for an experience in the Nelson Bay region? Then you're in luck! There are plenty of options to choose from for any type of activity - whether it be a gift voucher for a relaxing massage or an hour of kayak hire - there is something for everyone.
These are just 5 experience gift ideas that I have found, as I have been searching for the ultimate Christmas present in the region. When you ask someone what they want for Christmas and they say "I don't know", just get them one of these! You can't go wrong!

1/ Moonshadow-TQC Cruises offer gift vouchers for their tours around the waters of Port Stephens. Their comfortable cruise boats take locals and tourists whale watching, dolphin watching, on sunset dinner cruises, to local islands and more. All gift vouchers are valid for 3 years from date of purchase, so the recipient has plenty of time to use it. See here for details.
2/ Port Stephens Paddlesports offer gift vouchers for kayak, SUP and water bike hire, as well as for their kayak tours. This is an affordable gift idea with one hour of SUP hire, cruising the waters of Shoal Bay, costing just $30. What a great present! See here for details.

3/ Quad Bike King is a popular tourist attraction in the region as they offer thrilling quad bike tours through the Stockton Sand Dunes and Worimi Conservation Lands. They offer gift vouchers for all of their tours, with prices starting from $99 for fun in The Sandpit. If you plan on buying a gift voucher for a whole family, please check the age restrictions on the tours first, as minimum ages and heights apply. See here for details (scroll down to the bottom).

4/ Port Stephens Surf School also offers gift vouchers, so you can give the gift of learning to surf! Check out their website for all the options - such as learn-to-surf group lessons and individual lessons at either One Mile Beach or Fingal Bay. They also offer classes to teach you how to SUP at Dutchmans Beach. This is the perfect gift idea for someone who loves the water - it will change their life! See here for details.

5/ Holiday Accommodation Gift Vouchers are another good idea, to shout someone you love a weekend away to relax. Even if the person you are buying for lives in the region, it still feels like a holiday when they're sleeping in crisp hotel sheets and sipping cocktails by the pool! Two popular accommodation options that offer gift vouchers are Amarna Luxury Beach Resort at Dutchmans Beach and Bannisters Port Stephens at Soldiers Point.
I hope this list has helped you find an experience gift voucher for that person who is hard to buy for, or who loves to get out and about and enjoy life in the Port Stephens region. When it looks this good, below, it makes you want to buy one for yourself!
