Dolphcom - Dolphin & Whale Swimming Adventures

121 Tirriki Street, Charlestown NSW 2290

Waking from a dream and the vision of swimming with Dolphins and Autistic children, in 1996, Andrew began an odyssey of adventure, one that would transform him from a humble residential builder and developer, to one of Australia’s leading dolphin experts and facilitator of Dolphin Assisted Therapy.

This journey has taken Andrew around the world in search of locations for his extraordinary work, meeting many leading experts who share his vision and passion for Dolphins and Whales.

As a father of three young boys he is excited about working with youth and currently resides as president of the Newcastle NSW Australia based charity RUSH Haven Inc. Andrew has recently joined ORRCA as part of the trained marine mammal rescue unit and highly recommends the organisation.

Andrew shares his knowledge of Cetaceans, his passion for training and achieving results, spirituality and healing with the help of an enthusiastic team and the wonderful and loving Dolphins with as many people as he can aboard the wonderful 50 foot catamaran ‘Imagine’ at Port Stephens.

Andrew invites you to join one of his remarkable programs in Port Stephens or in the south pacific ( Ha’apai Tonga) and share the profound experience of the Dolphins and Whales.

DolphCom’s team of professionals is committed to assisting human evolution and exploring human potential to produce profound outcomes.

Hunter Vineyard Tours

PO Box 124, Cardiff NSW 2285

After we have all the passengers onboard we will head to our first winery.

Midweek tours can be a MYSTERY tour. A lot of the time we may wait until all the passengers are onboard and after discussing with them what and where could be of interest we decide what to do. Your driver will then try and make arrangements with the wineries concerned to make the bookings. Normally we will spend around 45mins at each winery. Depending on passenger numbers we will visit 2 wineries before heading to lunch, this will be at a restaurant/winery where you will have a 2 course meal ( mains and dessert) if lunch option is chosen,  after tasting the wines on offer. The lunch stop including tasting is between 1.5  and 2 hrs duration we will head off and visit 2 more wineries during the afternoon before we take you back to your accommodation for a well earned rest.

Weekend tours are more organised as this is the busiest time for the Valley.

You can let us know when you make your booking if you have some favourites you like to visit and we will do our best to at least fit some of these into the day.

Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia

1 Wetlands Place, Shortland NSW 2307

The story of the Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is nothing less than inspirational.

Until the mid 1980s this vibrant wetland refuge was a dump in every sense of the word!  Over the previous century, the massive Hunter estuary wetland system known as Hexham Swamp had been progressively filled for rubbish, railways and recreation, leaving only fragmented patches of remnant wetlands across the estuary. A significant patch of wetland in Shortland was converted to football fields and a clubhouse. This one-time home ground of the Hamilton Rugby Club was to become the eventual site of the Hunter Wetlands Centre.

Today, Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is a vibrant wetland ecosystem bursting with life. The site is regarded as a wetland of national and international importance and the centre enjoys a growing reputation for excellence in wetland conservation, education and ecotourism.

This remarkable transformation was due to the determination and persistence of the local community and some far-sighted organisations, who have joined forces to protect and restore this remarkable wetland for the benefit of all who depend on it… and those who simply enjoy it!.
