We invite the community to contribute stories of about 200 words on any topic connected to the Port Stephens region, including people, places, buildings or events.

These stories can be funny, sad, quirky, informative, humble or ostentatious – but they have to be true.

The website MidCoast-Stories gives beautiful examples of stories collected about the mid-north coast.

We encourage you to do the same for Port Stephens and help preserve the region’s history for future generations.
