    Events are well recognised as drivers of visitation and visitor spend and provide tourism, trade and investment opportunities for Port Stephens. Events can also be a driver of infrastructure development through increasing demand and provide an opportunity for Council to reinforce its brand, stimulate the economy and smooth seasonal fluctuations.
