Holidaying with Kids

Port Stephens is perfect for a family holiday. It is just 2.5 hours North of Sydney, 1 hour North of Newcastle, 1.5 hours from the Hunter Valley and a short flight from Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast (Newcastle Airport is actually in Port Stephens and only 30 minutes from Nelson Bay).

What will you do when you are in Port Stephens? Where do we begin – hop aboard a dolphin or whale watch cruise, join a 4WD tour of the Stockton Beach sand dunes, go to the beach (we have 26 of them), go snorkelling, go fishing, bring or hire bikes and go for a family ride, walk to the top of Tomaree Headland or visit some of Port Stephens attractions where you can pat a koala or feed a sting ray.

Looking for accommodation to suit your baby, toddler, two kids, five kids, teenagers, family plus grandparents, extended family, two families… whatever your family looks like, we have the accommodation for a great family holiday!

You might choose a beach house where everyone is together and the water is just steps away or some units within the same complex so you are together yet have your own space, something with a BBQ and outdoor area for family meals, something with a pool and tennis court, close to the beach and a park, a home away from home but better than home, or an affordable base with all the facilities you need (treat yourselves to Port Stephens fantastic cafes, restaurants and clubs or cook up a feast at your accommodation, with self contained accommodation the choice is yours).

Browse through our 200+ properties, just select the number of people and what you are looking for (bedrooms, bathrooms, parking, views etc.) and our search function will narrow down your search to properties that match your needs. You can even add linen hire and holiday hire (cots, high chairs etc.) to your booking and it will all be at your property when you arrive.
