Anna Bay is the name of a suburb, a town and a bay in the Port Stephens local government area in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.[3][4][5][9] The suburb and town are immediately adjacent to the north-eastern end of Stockton Beach and the town provides one of the major entry points to the beach here.[10] Both were named after the bay of the same name which is now located in the adjacent suburb of One Mile.

During World War II Stockton Beach was heavily fortified against a possible amphibious assault by Imperial Japanese forces and a line of tank traps was installed to prevent entry to the local area through the town. Many of the tank traps were removed after the war and now feature significantly around the car parking areas at the beach.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ ABS Quickstats are not available for the geographically recognised suburb of Anna Bay or for just the township itself. The population figure stated in this article is for much of Anna Bay but includes some residents from adjacent Bobs Farm.
  2. ^ The population density provided here is for much of Anna Bay but includes some residents from adjacent Bobs Farm. See Note 1 above for more information.
  3. ^ The area calculation is based on NSW GNB maps for the whole suburb of Anna Bay. The area of Anna Bay and adjacent parts of Bobs Farm that was used to calculate the population density (see Notes 1 & 2 for further information) is 18.2 square kilometres (7.0 sq mi).[2] Most of Anna Bay consists of unpopulated beaches and wetlands and sparsely populated rural areas. However, there are also some other residential areas, mainly on Nelson Bay Road, for which data is not available. For this reason the population density provided cannot be assumed to be representative of the whole suburb.
