Hawks Nest is a tranquil and beautiful beachside holiday destination. Situated on the Northern shores of Port Stephens and only 2.5 hours north of Sydney with both ocean and river frontage, Hawks Nest has the charming atmosphere of an unspoilt village. There's as much to do here or as little as you please. There are plenty of quiet spaces to read a good book if you plan to put your feet up. Recreation is unlimited, first class golf course, world renowned diving spots, deep sea fishing, dolphin watching and river cruises, sailing, windsurfing, freshwater lagoons, rainforest walks, koalas and a world of wildlife to explore, as well as cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants and islands to explore by boat. There are no fast food chains and no fast talkers, no traffic lights and no traffic. I love it.
How to get there:
By car - an easy 2.5 hour drive on the F3 freeway north from Sydney or an hour from Newcastle to the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens turn off.
By plane to Newcastle
