Eat & Drink

A visit to Port Stephens isn’t complete without a fish 'n’ chip luncheon!

Heading to Port Stephens over the summer period? As someone who holidays there every single summer, one thing I can’t get enough of is the fish 'n' chips. Digging into a bag of crispy chips, snacking on deep-fried calamari rings, sharing a battered fresh fish and drinking on a cool beverage; does it get any more Australian?

If you’re yet to find your favourite one around the area, we’ve made it a little easier by listing some of our favourites to get you started!
