If you’re looking for your next wild animal adventure then look no further! Dolphin Swim Australia’s wild dolphin swim tours offer the thrill of a lifetime. Operating offshore in the beautiful Port Stephens’ Great Lakes Marine Park with oceanic dolphins, these tours are just a 2.5 hr drive north of Sydney. The all-natural experience is even more special than other wild dolphin swims as the dolphins choose to join the vessel and interact with you in their natural habitat. After the adventure tour, you make your way back home knowing that the dolphins remain wild and free.

Sydney Weekender, hosted by Mike Whitney, is now in its 24th year!
Travelling around the city and throughout the length & breadth of the state, each episode investigates the best places to stay, eat and play so you can make the most of your weekend.
After retiring from international cricket, Mike first appeared on Sydney Weekender back in 1994, and since then has loved every minute of it.
Over the years, Mike has hosted Sydney Weekender from all over New South Wales; from Eden in the south, to Tibooburra in the far northwest of the state.
One of Mike's favourite moments was when he had the chance to fly in a fully restored De Havilland Vampire fighter jet at the Temora Aviation Museum. "The pilot opened the throttle and sent the Vampire vertical," he says, "It was such a blast - the whole time I was thinking - I've got the best job in the world."
Sydney Weekender is on every Sunday at 5.30pm on the Seven Network in Sydney, and across N.S.W. & the A.C.T. on the PRIME Network. It's repeated a week later on 7TWO.
We're also on 7TWO on Saturdays - Please check your local guide for times.
