Family holidays allow young warriors to participate in the ancient battle for the top bunk bed. Embrace the big moments in life with today’s Groupon: $329 for three nights in a hotel room for two adults ($681 value) or $495 for three nights in a two-bedroom apartment for two adults and two children ($929 value) with early check-in and late checkout plus a choice of dolphin cruise or 4WD sandboarding adventure at Oaks Lure, Nelson Bay.
With a combination of spacious hotel rooms and architect-designed apartments, Oaks Lure is a relaxing base to explore the natural wonderland of the Port Stephens area. Sun-lovers lounge on pristine beaches or take a refreshing dip in the ocean; little mermaids enjoy a spot of snorkelling; gourmands relish fresh local seafood; and boaties explore the vast blue bay and beautiful inlets. On one day of the stay, choose a fabulous activity for up to four people: a 90-minute dolphin watching cruise into the wide blue yonder to meet some playful new friends; or a 4WD sandboarding adventure at the famous Stockton sand dunes, sure to get the adrenalin pumping for young and old.
Oaks Lure is set in the idyllic coastal town of Nelson Bay in the heart of Port Stephens, two and a half hours north of Sydney. Just a short walk from the marina, great restaurants and boutique shops, the resort is stylishly appointed with an outdoor lap pool, children’s wading pool, BBQ facilities and guest laundry to keep clothes spick and span. Groupeeps make the most of their stay with an early 1pm check-in, and late 12pm checkout to enable maximum sleep-ins on the last day.
Shopping, restaurants, the cinema and the waterfront are all close by. The units were spacious, clean and well appointed ( TV's, DVD, mini stereo, oven, gas hob, dishwasher, fridge etc.) with a pool, lap pool and BBQ facilities available. Many had views across Port Stephens all the way up the coast.
