The earliest inhabitants of the Port Stephens region and particularly the land close to Port Stephens itself were the members of the Worimi Aboriginal tribe and their middens may be seen at many points along the beach. These middens, which are up to 12,000 years old, consist mainly of the remnants of pipis and whelk shells. As the beach is constantly reshaped by the winds some middens are concealed while new ones are revealed.
Stockton Beach is an awe inspiring 32 kilometre stretch of beach and sand dunes which can exceed 30 metres in height. Stockton Beach is located between Birubi Point at Anna Bay in the north of Port Stephens, and the town of Stockton near Newcastle in the south. This almost surreal dune system is up to 1 kilometre wide in places and covers an area of over 2,500 hectares. It is reputedly the largest ‘moving’ sand dune system in the southern hemisphere.
The Bight is also home to the wreck of The MV Sygna which was a 53,000 tonne Norwegian bulk carrier that ran aground during a major storm after battling unsuccessfully against winds of up to 185km/hr on 26 May 1974.
