Boat Harbour is a suburb of the Port Stephens local government area in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.[2][3] The main population centre of the suburb is the village also known as Boat Harbour.[4] Both lie adjacent to the bay after which they were named.[5][6]

From the easternmost end of Ocean Parade in highest part of the suburb, adjacent to the Tomaree National Park at Morna Point, there are striking views of the coastline. On a clear day it is possible to follow the coast southwards to the horizon, well beyond Newcastle.

Boat Harbour is a sheltered, sandy bay. Kingsley Beach is just to the south and is popular with surfers.
