Bus Travel Sydney to Nelson Bay (Port Stephen NSW)

The Port Stephens
I am currently living in Port Stephen's Nelson Bay, still part of New South Wales here in Australia.  Port Stephen is a city in the Hunter region with a lot of bushlands (Tomaree). Parks and Beaches are naturally beautiful.

There are several bays in Port Stephen where you're going to see clean and beautiful residential beaches, they're Anna bay, Fern Bay, Fishermans Bay, Corlette, Shoal Bay, Fingal Bay, Nelson Bay and the Salamander Bay where the only legit shopping mall is located. other parts of Port Stephen are Raymond Terrace, Clarrence Town, etc.

Train Travel
This place can be reached from Sydney by taking the NSW Trains and getting down to Hamilton Train Station and then taking a bus (Port Stephen Coaches) ride going to Fingal Bay. Travelling time is approximately 5 hours including the waiting time. Note that the bus last trip from Hamilton Station to Fingal Bay is at around 7 o'clock in the night, and the last trip from Fingal Bay to Hamilton Station is at around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Use google map or Port Stephen Coaches website for the timings.

Depending on your location they are able to pick you up at the proper bus stop. People usually need to make a booking from the Port Stephen Coaches website to secure a sit. You can pay cash on board or by card.

Taxi and Uber from Hamilton Train Station
Hamilton is a suburbs of Newcastle, There are metered taxis within the area of Hamilton that are able to bring you to any part of Port Stephen,
I once arrived at Hamilton Station late, and taxi and Uber are the only options I have to go to Nelson Bay. I asked the taxi driver for the approximation of fare and it so expensive more than a hundred dollar. I decided to check my Uber app and luckily Uber works in Newcastle. I choose Uber and reached my home in Nelson Bay for just $80.  Note that there is no Uber service if you are coming Nelson Bay ,Fingal Bay.
