Soldiers Point lies on a peninsula that juts out from the southern shores of Port Stephens and separates the eastern third of the port from the western two-thirds. It is surrounded by absolute waterfront. With stunning waterways, tranquil bushland and calm safe swimming beaches all on offer, you’ll never want to go leave.

Cafe and harbor at Soldiers Point

This is a great location for you to watch the sunset over the water.

It’s close to the popular Nelson Bay, and shares many of the same traits as its neighbours. There is a fine marina, a relaxed lifestyle and calm beach waters. The jetties on either side of the point offer great fishing.

It is believed to be named after the Corporal’s Guard once stationed there and was the site of Cromarty land grant. Formerly called Friendship Point. The town was called Friendship Point before the Corporal’s Guard was stationed there (hence its new name).
