Experience the perfect escape to nature

Looking for a luxury get away? Look no further! We have the perfect place for you to rest your head - from dawn to dusk, this will be an experience like no other.

Important Note: Construction of a $2M expansion to the Koala Hospital has commenced and will be complete in late 2024/ early 2025. There may be some disruptions caused by this construction that could impact your stay with us at the Sanctuary. We plan to, where ever possible, minimise construction impacts to avoid as much inconvenience caused. For more information click here

Set in 8 hectares of stunning bushland and nestled on the edge of the magnificent One Mile Beach and Worimi Conservation Lands sand dunes, Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary offers the best of both worlds. We’re close enough to experience the abundance of sights and activities Port Stephens has to offer, yet secluded enough to enjoy the native bird and animal life which have made their homes in the surrounding wetlands.

Our twenty (20) 4 Star Glamping tents offer you the perfect place to rejuvenate while enjoying a unique nocturnal experience. Wake up with the koalas in their spectacular natural bushland setting and enjoy everything that our Koala Sanctuary has to offer.

If glamping is not for you, we also have twenty (20) 4 star accommodations from Deluxe Studio Rooms to our One Bedroom Deluxe Suites. These offer a more traditional hotel stay, so you can experience the koalas’ natural setting while taking in the stunning views of our beautiful bushland environments.

Accommodation guests enjoy unlimited access to the koala sanctuary and use of the resort style swimming pool surrounded by cool inviting lawn that also incorporates a heated outdoor spa cascading into a small surrounding pool. Located throughout the Sanctuary are several purpose built BBQ stations that offer guests a true aussie BBQ experience where you can cook up a storm.

Introducing the Tomaree Coastal Walk (TCW), experience, an extraordinary adventure that combines the stunning new Tomaree Coastal Walk with an immersive visit to the renowned Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary, culminating in an unforgettable four star glamping experience.
