Nelson Bay - Port Stephens - Girl's Getaway

Neslon Bay is a small resort town, a short trip north from Sydney. A popular destination for tourists and families but this weekend, it is just "the girls".

Water activities include snorkelling, scuba diving, boating, parasailing, whale and dolphin watching, fishing and swimming. There are children's playgrounds, BBQ areas and even a dog friendly beach!

For the land people, there is golf, horse  riding and more.

For the foodies, there is plenty of award winning seafood and restaurants to chose from as well as some delicious wineries to visit. could just sit in your room and watch Mad Men for three hours, lie by the pool, have a dip and then take in a movie at the local cinema as we did!

We stayed at The Mantra Aqua in a two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, dining and lounge, overlooking the pool. It was wonderful and I would definitely stay there again. 

I went for a little walk around the Marina and there was a lot going on. Tourists visiting, boats leaving for tours, Maritime patrolling, families barbecuing but somehow it was still very peaceful....a gorgeous and relaxing place.
