Salamander Bay is a large, curved bay on the northern edge of the Tomaree Peninsula in Port Stephens, New South Wales. The bay is partially protected to the east by Corlette Pont, and from the north by Wanda Point. Sandy beaches have formed in the lee of both these headlands. This picture was taken from the eastern side of the bay, where the beach is protected by Corlette Point. The bay lies at the base of Soldiers Point, just to the south of Wanda Beach. To the east, beyond Corlette Point is Sandy Point and Bagnalls Beach.
Salamander Bay is close to Nelson Bay, offering quick access to the popular beaches around the eastern end of the Tomaree Peninsula, but also far enough away to allow faster access to the famous wine tasting and vineyards of the Hunter Valley if you are want a change from the sand and sea. For this reason, the nearby town of Salamander Bay is popular with holdiay makers. The town also offers a golf course (Le Meilleur Horizons Golf Resort) and a nearby shopping centre.
