Great Lakes

Great Lakes’ paradise stretches north from Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest on Port Stephens, to the tidal lakes and white sand beaches of Forster and Tuncurry. Verdant farmland, country villages and native forests enhance the Great Lakes’ 145 kilometres of shoreline, while the elegant town of Stroud conserves a convict-built townscape.

The Great Lakes brims with holiday adventure all year round: summertime surfing on excellent waves and swims in crystal clear rockpools and bays; wintertime canoeing on serene tidal lakes and snowballing on plateaus, just an hour’s drive away; spring strolls through undisturbed flora reserves and sightings of magical dolphins and migrating whales just off the coast; autumn bushwalks through sun-dappled rainforest; and anytime glimpses of the diverse lifestyles and cultures of a region which treasures the beauty of its wilderness.

Savour freshly caught seafood, a dozen of Wallis Lake’s famous oysters and a bottle of local wine; sleep to the tune of rolling surf and look forward to the next day’s adventure. The Great Lakes promises you holidays even better than you remember.

GREAT LAKES- ONCE YOU’VE BEEN, YOU’LL WANT TO COME BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
