At just 215 km north east of Sydney, getting to Condo 105 @ Horizons Resort for your holiday is as easy as flying into Newcastle or Sydney airport and hiring a car. The drive from Sydney to Condo 105 takes you past some lovely towns and spots including Ettalong Beach, Umina Beach, Berowra, and Ku-Rin-Gai Chase National Park.
Condo 105 is the best place to start your Hunter Valley holiday.
Nelson Bay is just a 7km drive to the east, and is the main town of the Port Stephens region. The calm beaches of the bay are perfect for families to relax, while the coastal beaches as great for surfing and body boarding.
Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay are home to some of the best beaches in the Port Stephens area. There are over 20 beaches including sheltered bays and open ocean beaches which gives you plenty of option for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing and walking.
If you enjoy diving and snorkelling, the tiny promontory of Fly Point is an aquatic reserve as is Broughton Island where you’ll find what local divers call “The Looking Glass”, a split that runs through the middle of the island and is alive with marine life. There are lot of places for snorkelling and diving for all experience levels, so you don’t need to worry about missing out.
In Nelson Bay you’ll also find the country’s largest coastal dune system which stretches for more than 30 km to the northern reaches of Newcastle, and the Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse.
Another 2 km to the east, you’ll find Shoal Bay which is an excellent bush walking area. We recommend the walking tracks in Tomaree National Park, which is a 20 km strip between Shoal Bay and Anna Bay. Shoal bay is a great place to head out for a meal and the base for fishing trips and cruises around Port Stephens.
An absolute must-do while you’re staying at Condo 105 is to head out on a whale watching cruise if you are staying during the season. The Port Stephens region is on the annual migration track and you can see whales heading north in June and July and then south again in September to November. The area is also home to large pods of dolphins that you can see from dolphin watch cruises or even while paddling around on a kayak in the bay.
Another must do is swimming with the dolphins. There is only one wild dolphin swim permitted in NSW, and it is in the Port Stephens/Great Lakes Marine Park. The organisers will take you offshore on a 50-ft ocean catamaran where you will get the chance to swim with Short Beaked Common Dolphins and Oceanic Bottle Nosed Dolphins. This is an amazing experience not to be missed.
If you love spending your holidays getting the adrenalin running, then a holiday at Condo 105 @ Horizons Golf Resort is for you. In the area you’ll find go karting, bike hire, horse riding, helicopter joy flights as well as a shark and ray centre. Hit up the sand dunes with some sand boarding, or spend the day on a quad or join a 4WD Safari Tour.
If you are visiting us over a weekend, make sure you book yourself in for a camel ride on the beach. You can book in for an hour long sunset ride, which is a great way to finish off the day. After your camel ride, head back to Horizons Resort and sit back with a glass of wine watching the animals come out at dusk.
If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on soil, you can often see both dolphins and whales from Tomaree National Park Headland.
Tomaree National Park is the backdrop to the towns and villages of Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, Boat Harbour and Anna Bay and offers coastal bush land, forests and over 20 km of rocky coastline and white sandy beaches. Keep your eyes open for outcrops of the acid volcanic rock, Rhyodacite. It’s a great place for a picnic or a walk – in safe conditions you can walk out to Fingal Island and the lighthouse.
The Port Stephens Visitor Centre is a great place to visit when you arrive to find out more about the attractions in the area.
Salamander Bay is home to some of the most tranquil beaches you’ll find in the NSW Hunter region, making it the perfect holiday destination.
