Tea Gardens is a charming town situated along the Myall Waterway with a backdrop of beautiful waterways and pristine natural features. The area is known for its scenic views, outdoor cafes and white-sand beaches.
Things to do in Tea Gardens
Ready for an adventure? Rent a kayak and head out onto the Myall Waterways. You can embark on a solo journey, join a guided tour or travel with a group and enjoy exquisite water vistas while keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins.
For a scenic view of the area, visit the Singing Bridge, where you can enjoy a picnic or lounge for a few hours on one of the benches. Soak in the views of Port Stephens, feed the pelicans and, if you’re lucky, you can catch sights of dolphins playing out on the water.
The Galleries in the Gardens project provides a dose of local culture. You can see art created by local artists on display at the Courtyard Art Gallery or observe the public art pieces located along the waterfront. Meander through the town shops to discover an array of artwork available for purchase.
Looking for some sunshine? Spend a day at Hawk’s Nest Beach, a long stretch of white sand that extends through Myall Lakes National Park. Take a 4WD along the beach, grab your board and hit the surf or lounge in a beach chair with your toes in the sand.
