Opening Hours
Information not available
Fly Point is located between Nelson Bay and Little Beach with spectacular sweeping views of the Bay. Fly Point is a protected aquatic sanctuary that offers some of the best shore diving and snorkelling in the State. Lush sponge gardens and kelp forests are just a few metres from the beach and home to pineapple fish, blue groupers, octopus, wobbegong sharks and even elusive seahorses. In Summer, juvenile tropical fish appear including butterfly fish, damsel fish, wrass and butterfly cod. The reserve extends from the high water park to 500 metres offshore. Fishing is banned as well as the collection of any marine organisms, including shells, so bring an underwater camera to capture the memories. The aquatic reserve is a haven for divers and is one of the most visited dive sites in NSW. The area is now part of the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park and is protected within a sanctuary zone. To gain access to the aquatic reserve, travel along Victoria Parade to Neil Caroll Park and walk down the staircase opposite the amphitheatre.
