Nelson Bay Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 76 photos

I couldnt believe id never been here before amazing and only a leisurely 3 hour drive north from sydney kool. I needed to get away from sydney for a few awhile and this place was just what i needed .The pictures here dont do it justice believe me . The beaches here have a much whiter sand than sydney the bays and waterways are very clean and there is an abundance of aquatic life .

I was here over easter and it seemed very quiet often i was the only person on the beach where i was fishing and swimming i couldnt believe it .AT one point i hired a boat and was pleasantly surprised to come across a pod of dolphins cruising along side me awsome .

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:white sandy beaches crystal clean water , relaxing .
  • Cons:i wanted to move here haha ,but i decided to put that of till later .
  • In a nutshell:leave your worries behind , see how the other half lives .
