"So close to the Marina!!"
Sara and Danielle were outstanding staff at Oaks Lure!! They always greeted us with a friendly smile, suggested places to go to and places to eat (Little Beach Boathouse is AMAZING) and helped us with anything we needed. We can't thank them enough for their incredible service! The location was amazing! It was so close to the beautiful marina and you could see right out to the bay. Everything is so close by or a 15 min drive if you want to go to Bob's Farm or Medowie. Oaks has secure underground parking so taking the car up and driving it around Port Stephens was no trouble. The room was very nice. We got a 1 bedroom apartment which was perfect for the 2 of us. The kitchen utensils and tools were great too! Much better than other places we've stayed at so if you wanted to, you could cook a great meal there. The really nice touch we found they did was when we checked in late (around 9:30/10pm) they had left the heaters on for us in our room which was just so lovely and exactly what we needed after our drive up.

"Basic Accommodation but tidy and clean"
Staff were friendly but the room was very basic. The beds were terrible and the pillows very uncomfortable. The toiletry items are dispensers on a wall which gave you the impression of looking for the cheapest option available. I would rate this as a three star establishment.

"Wonderful hotel, close to everything "
My partner and I stayed here recently to celebrate our anniversary. The stuff were wonderful and helped my partner organise a surprise in our room as well as a late check out on the Sunday morning. The motel was close to everything we needed and we hardly used the car. The cafe was lovely for breakfast but is very busy so get in early.

"Very hospitable, clean comfortable b&b"
We arrived a little earlier than check-in and Ian and Trish were very welcoming. Helpful hints about what to do in the area. Room spotless and everything you need with little extras. Spa area just lovely. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, cereals and home-made bread with a huge selection of condiments. Would definitely recommend.

    Pocket Guide: Nelson Bay

    Nelson Bay is the main town in Port Stephens, a NSW beach haven with 26 beaches. The diving and snorkelling is incredible, but there are also calm, family-friendly spots for safe swimming or sailing. You can watch whales, spot a porpoise or two, wander Tomaree National Park, sip coffee by the seaside, or hop across the Bay to . Wot more could you want from a beach holiday? Choose from our range of Nelson Bay hotels and all you’ll need to remember is to pack your swimmers and sunscreen.


    In the early 19th century, a group of Chinese fishermen established a base at Nelson Bay and sent their catch back home. The town was first surveyed in 1874, and in 1882 Captain John Dalton built a house on the hill overlooking the town, calling it ‘Westward Ho’.

    Things to do

    Fly to Fly Point, where you can dive into the water and meet and greet an octopus or wobbegong. You’ll also spot fish, sea spiders and other little critters swimming around the coral.

    On nearby Broughton Island, you can go through the Looking Glass! Here, the Looking Glass is a stretch of sea that runs through the middle of the island. Unlike Alice, you’ll have a snorkel or a scuba suit – and there isn’t a rabbit hole in sight. There is a wonderland, though: grey nurse sharks, eagle rays, gropers and morwongs have been seen swimming among walls of rock. You can only get to Broughton Island by boat, but even the journey itself is beautiful, with sea cliffs and dolphins along the way. If you’d rather stay dry, but don’t wanna miss the marine life, take a whale watching cruise.

    If swimming is on your agenda, there are plenty of options in Nelson Bay and Port Stephens in general. Nelson Bay Foreshore is a nice place for a paddle, and also for festivals like the wine and craft beer-filled Tastes at the Bay Festival. If you’re after something more adventurous, feed a shark or stingray at the Australian Shark and Ray Centre, which is open seven days a week. Wade out and feel the adrenaline as a 3-metre shark rubs past you, searching for food.

    Spend some time at Tomaree National Park, where you can explore deserted beaches and coastal forests with koalas and wildflowers.

    If you’re into surfing or kite surfing, the best waves can be found across the bay at either Windy Woppa or Jimmy’s Beach in Hawks Nest, where you can also go kayaking or sailing on a catamaran or Hobie Cat right off the beach.

    If wine is one of your passions, head to nearby Bobs Farm, a small suburb in Port Stephens and visit the Nelson Bay Winery and Murray’s Brewery, or tuck into the olives at Sams Fig and Olive, where you can pick up some beautiful and tasty olive oils, tapenades and fig jams.

    Shopping and dining

    Nelson Bay has seafood restaurants by the sea, Chinese restaurants in the town centre, and cafes all over the place, including one inside the Nelson Bay Lighthouse. Take a walk in the town centre and you’ll find dive shops, surf shops and fashion boutiques.
