Getting there

Travel by air

For many interstate guests, travel by air may be most convenient. The closest airport to The Anchorage Hotel & Spa in Port Stephens is Newcastle Airport (NTL). Historically, airlines such as Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin Australia and Regional Express have had flights in and out of Newcastle Airport.

NFMRI is arranging a small amount of shuttles for select times on the 23-25 November 2021 to coincide with key flights arriving/departing at Newcastle Airport to The Anchorage Hotel and Spa.

 Should your flight arrive outside of these times, it may be best to organise an Uber or a taxi to take you from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is approximately 33km (30 minutes) from Newcastle Airport.


There are trains departing daily from Sydney (Central Station) to Newcastle, with connecting buses to Port Stephens. For more information, please visit the Transport NSW website.


There are express bus services available to/from Port Stephens and Sydney (approximately 2 hours). For more information and to see the timetable, please visit the Port Stephens Coaches website.
