Located in the Hunter region of New South Wales, just a half hour drive from Sydney is Port Stephens. It’s a large natural harbor that has an abundance of un-spoilt natural scenery and is one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations. One of the most popular Port Stephens accommodation apartments is Oaks Lure, which is situated on the beaches of Hamlet Bay. The property promises a family-friendly environment with cozy self-contained accommodation balanced with the luxuries of a four point five star rated hotel such as a heated spa, swimming pools and panoramic balconies.
Dubbed as the ‘Dolphin Capital of Australia’, Port Stephens plays host to a population of more than one hundred and forty bottle-neck dolphins, and has a multitude of dolphin-cruises available daily from May to November. As far as accommodation is concerned, the small island has plenty of properties to suit any budget.
In addition to their various water-bound activities, Port Stephens has a reputation for helicopter tours that enables travelers to have a bird’s eye view of the splendors of the island, such as Fingal Bay, a breath-taking coastal suburb. The majority of Fingal Bay is comprised of Tomaree National Park, which contains both scenic beaches and sprawling greens. Some of the helicopter tours contain packages that are truly unforgettable. Such as the Ales and Altitudes package where travelers are flown to a brewery and treated to beer and great food prior to being shown the natural glory of the island. The unique and eclectic mix of adventure and luxury that a vacation in Port Stephens is guaranteed to deliver cannot be found anywhere else. The serenity of blissful coastal beaches, the thrill and enigma of lush forests, and the luxury of hotel accommodation couples with all the comforts of a metropolitan sounds like a definitive slice of heaven.
