Australia's First Carbon Neutral Marina

In 2008 Soldiers Point Marina became the world's first marina to become NoCO2 Certified as part of the Low Carbon Marina Initiative, a national, voluntary certification program for marinas, yacht clubs, boat clubs, slipways and other associated industry operators across Australia. The initiative was designed to support the marine industry's endeavours in protecting our coastal and inland waterways with an action plan against global warming.

Testimonial

A Marina for boaties that's an 'experience' not just a destination.

Soldiers Point Marina, Port Stephens was a destination much talked about and recommended by other sailing friends. It surpassed expectations. The berths are suited to the prevailing winds and generous in size so docking doesn't even require the assistance you'll get. Jetties are decorated with hanging flower baskets and interesting sculptures and are in themselves a tourist attraction. Once here, there is no need to leave although if you need to re-provision or sight-see you can do it in the courtesy cars - one is a Lexus. Coffee and papers are delivered in the morning and cocktails in the afternoon. There is a lot of theatre surrounding the delivery too.We happened to be there for Valentines Day so a rose was delivered to all the ladies. 

The bathroom suites gleam and are floor to ceiling marble, rivalling anything you'd find at the Sheraton. There is no detail that the owner hasn't thought of to make your stay the most relaxing and enjoyable possible. You'll find all the usual Marina facilities plus extras and it's all top notch. 3 types of award winning dining are available in the complex too, from waters edge coffee lounge through to a la carte. Light meals can even be delivered to your boat.

And if all of this doesn't persuade you that it's worth a visit in a beautiful physical location, their best asset is the staff who couldn't do more to help you have a fabulous, fabulous time. 

We stayed a week.
Still grinning!
