Stockton is a suburb of Newcastle that sits on a peninsula with the Hunter River to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the east. Stockton Beach is famous for its sand dunes that are part of the largest moving sand dune system in the southern hemisphere. Explore them by four-wheel drive or try sand boarding. The beach is 32 kilometres long with excellent swimming, surfing and fishing. Take the Shipwreck Walk and see the wreck of the Adolphe along the break wall.
