This small township lies on the ocean side of Port Stephens. It is the southern gateway to Tomaree National Park, which features coastal lookouts, bushwalks, sand dunes and rocky coastline.
Anna Bay is also the northern gateway to Stockton Beach, a remarkable and extensive dune area which is popular for 4 wheel driving and sandboarding. Tours to Stockton dunes are available from Anna Bay. The area is good for whale watching in the migration season.
