"What isn't here?" Nelson Bay by TouristLife

Nelson Bay Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 76 photos

I went to Nelson Bay for the first time as a kid, it has changed alot since then, but after going up for a daytrip just over a year ago, my partner and I are hooked!

Sometimes we go to relax and recoporate, but mostly we go for the fun.
I've been horse riding, hired Jet Skis, seen whales and dolphins
Hired a kayak and ridden on Quad Bikes

There is Parasailing too - though I am a bit scared of heights, but OH has done it and he LOVED it!

Best thing we did was pack a picnic lunch and hire a boat.
Chilled out on the water in the sun for a few hours. Caught some fish and we don't have a license - that's pretty great!

Seriously, if you are looking for a place to go at any age for any reason, go here!

The Marina is great for shopping - and there are heaps of places to eat with awesome views [Avoid Cafe Blue; food is overpriced and overrated]

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Short, Easy Drive from Sydney.
  • Cons:Nightlife doesn't compare to the city but, hey, you are on Holidays. Relax!
  • In a nutshell:If I could, I would LIVE here. I keep coming back and everytime I love it even more.
