Seaham Park

Dedicated as a Reserve for Public Recreation in 1838 as part of the survey by G. B. White and proclamation of the village layout. Its oldest picnic shelter was built from local timber hand trimmed by local craftsmen and has hosted many significant community gatherings. The cricket ground continues as a regular venue for matches as well as school sports and large family picnics. The Park is a Crown Reserve managed by Port Stephens Council and a local community volunteer committee in close collaboration with the NPWS which has responsibility for the adjoining Nature Reserve.
