It’s On!

It’s On! Is an initiative by Port Stephens Council, bringing a new vibrancy to the streets of Nelson Bay.

Every Wednesday and Saturday evening from 4:00PM-8:00PM in January will see Nelson Bay Foreshore transformed into a vibrant hub of markets, food stalls, live music and a pet-friendly environment suitable for the whole family.

It’s On! dates are subject to change due to weather and COVID-19 restrictions.

Eye To Eye Science Show

On 14 January 2022, Newcastle Museum will be hosting an interactive science show at both Raymond Terrace and Tomaree Libraries.
