 A walk along the breakwater is a must when you visit Stockton.NSW. No only does it have good views towards Newcastle , it also has views of Stockton Beach. This beach is good for children because it isn't too rough. The breakwater is made up of huge block of concrete plus big holders of rock. Embedded in the wall you will also see old shipwrecks that ran aground in the Stockton area.

Looking towards Nobby's Beach in Newcastle. It also shows the moth of the Hunter River.
