Corlette is a suburb of the Port Stephens local government area in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia. It is located just west of Nelson Bay on the shores of Port Stephens. It was named after Captain James Corlette who skippered the 63 tonnes (62 long tons) cutter Lambton which was the first privately owned local vessel. The Corlette was first used to ship timber and wool out of Port Stephens in 1816. While property values throughout the suburb average around A$475,000, in the most affluent areas on the shores of Salamander Bay individual sale prices of $3.7 million have been realised.
Corlette is located on the southern shores of Port Stephens with approximately 75% of the suburb's 4.3 kilometres (2.7 mi)* of coastline being occupied by three beaches. Its western border forms the shoreline of Salamander Bay, after which the adjoining suburb of Salamander Bay is named. On its northern shoreline are two beaches. The largest of these, Bagnalls Beach, gives its name to a large housing estate within the suburb.
