You will be hard pressed to find a better location for a lawn bowls trip! Port Stephens is located just 2.5 hours North of Sydney, 1 hour North of Newcastle and a short flight from Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Port Stephens is home to three bowling clubs; Nelson Bay, Soldiers Point and Fingal Bay. All three clubs offer weekly bowls, social bowls and a number of tournaments throughout the year (and they also all have excellent bistro’s for lunch or dinner).
