hey, im looking to suprise my girl this weekend & take her away for a night on saturday.
we live in sydney & i want to go somewhere with a niiiice beach & decent accomodation without breaking the bank.
anyone got any ideas? i was thinking palm beach but i cant get any accomodation there..
An easy 3 hours drive from Sydney, great beaches (calm, surf, bays, river, etc) and a fair bit to do.
Take F3 north towards Newcastle, turn off at "Hexham", go over the Hexham bridge, turn right at "Nelson Bay" sign and follow the signs.
Local places are Nelson Bay, Fingal Bay, Soldiers Point, etc.
Don't know what your budget's like, but have a look at the Shoal Bay Resort & Spa. It may break the bank, but it might be worth it (nudge, nudge )
Or Kiama - on the South Coast just south of Wollongong!
Amazing little beach side town with great beaches, cafes, restaurants and shopping.
