Now that we're more than half way through July, you may be dreading the fact that most of the public holidays have passed and that the Christmas break is months away. If there's one thing I'm good at, it is taking regular short trips.
Never underestimate what a weekend away could do for you!
Just before I jump into a mini-series of blog posts on favourite eating spots in Port Stephens, let me start by sharing with you, one of the best (and most affordable) resorts in New South Wales.
Oaks Pacific Blue is a relatively new resort located in Salamander Bay at Nelson Bay in NSW's North Coast and is only a 2.5 hour drive away from Sydney. Its luxurious serviced apartments, townhouses and hotel rooms makes it the perfect home away from home.
What makes Oaks Pacific Blue Resort so spectacular is their lagoon-style pool which encircles the entire resort and at 480m in length, it is apparently the longest pool in Australia! Some of the apartments and town houses have their own plunge pools as well, and there are also several man-made beaches and spas dotted around the lush tropical perimeter.
Prices start from just $114 for a hotel room or for $275, you can get a spacious two storey 3 bedroom apartment with full kitchen and laundry facilities and your own private plunge pool!
So, don't forget to check back regularly over the next week for new posts on my fave eating spots in Port Stephens!
