Located in picturesque Fingal Bay at Port Stephens, the home is just a few minutes level walk to the patrolled surf beach, the local sports club or tennis courts.

Port Stephens is approximately 2 hours drive north of Hornsby (in Sydney). There is also a regular bus service from Sydney to Fingal Bay and regular flights to nearby Newcastle Airport (Williamtown) from Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Brisbane. Port Stephens is a popular holiday destination all year round. There is a lot to do if you want to keep busy or it's a perfect place to relax and wind down, if that's how you like your holidays.

Fingal Beach is one of two patrolled surf beaches in the area and is the closest one to Shoal Bay and Nelson Bay. The village of Fingal Bay nestles between the beach and the Tomaree National Park. The holiday home, Nor'Easter, is located in a quiet residential area towards the southern end of Fingal Bay, near the national park and a level 7 minute stroll to the southern, protected end of the beach. The patrolled area near the surf club provides family friendly surfing and north of that you will find some board riders most days.


The quiet, level streets of Fingal Bay are ideal for cycling. You can walk or ride along the path above the beach, through the national park and all the way to Shoal Bay or Nelson Bay.

The beach is good for swimming and fishing and you can launch a boat at the southern end with a four wheel drive. The park on the headland has magnificent views and an electric BBQ and covered tables for picnics.

The surf club has a cafe offering breakfast, lunch and dinner and the local post office provides a small convenience store, cafe and take-away food.

Nearby Shoal Bay, Nelson Bay and the surrounding area provide:

- Boating, cruises, dolphin watching, scuba diving, para-sailing, jetskiing on Port Stephens

- Golf courses

- Headland and national park walks

- Restaurants and boutique shopping

- Camel rides, horse riding, quad bikes and 4WD trips to the sand dunes of Stockton Beach

- Wineries and a boutique brewery

- Ferry to Tea Gardens

- Morning and afternoon tea or lunch at the Inner Lighthouse with magnificent views of the port

- Parks, beaches, Sunday markets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nor'Easter. This house was spotless, beautifully presented with much care and had everything a family needs on holiday. Having 2 fridges was great as was the enclosed level yard and garage with table tennis table. It was very private and the weather was beautiful while we were there. We had many bbq's outside under the covered area with the wonderful log fire burning. The house was bigger than imagined from the pictures with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. The location was not too far from everything and it is a lovely area to walk the dog or wander down to the beach. Thanks very much to the owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great property We had a great week here at Nor'easter. The house was so much bigger than I thought. The kids loved the swings in the garden and it was so easy to let the kids play without having to worry about them as it was completely safe and fenced in. The beach was great for the kids and there is so much to do around port stephens area for the whole family. Will certainly be back. Thank you to the lovely owners for making the holiday so enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Place to stay We had an enjoyable week at Nor'Easter. It was spacious, well suited to an extended family group with small children. It had a well appointed kitchen and overall the inclusions were well thought out and well maintained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a find! We have four small children and finding appropriate accommodation is difficult. This house was immaculately clean, beautifully presented with much care and had everything a family could need. We were made to feel very welcome the lovely owners even left us a blow up pool to use! The single level completely fenced garden with swing set was put up great use every afternoon by the littlest escaping a full days sun at the beach. The big kids loved riding their scooters to the playground, nearby sports club for early dinner or the afternoon beach run. House had everything we needed for cooking and two fridges were great. The garage was immaculate and provided a great space to play ping pong at night. Fingal bay beach is by far the best beach in the area for under 12s. It had a sheltered end with large outlet for playing with toy boats while bigger kids could swim with a gentle wave. Shoal bay beautiful for dinner but while the beach is pretty it is narrow and had a ditch creating dumpers of waves not suitable for little ones. Fingal bay felt like Eden. We are going back in 2015! Thanks again to the owners. Ps. Don't believe the tourism web copy that says you can cross the point on low tide. The lifesaver on duty said they had lost people trying that and the web copy should be pulled down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location! Excellent Stay! Great value and as clean as a whistle. Everything was as described on the website. I am very pleased to be able to recommend Nor'Easter to anyone looking for a quiet (very quiet) Port Stephens getaway. It was a pleasure to stay there! Walk to beach to easy bike riding! Wonderful.
