Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Nelson Bay, Australia, Your Home Away From Home

The town of Nelson Bay is located on the eastern, Pacific coast of Australia. This is within the state of New South Wales, a good few hours’ driving time north of the city of Sydney and around an hour north of Newcastle. You should soon discover exactly why holidays in Nelson Bay are so popular, when staying in your comfortable self catering accommodation. This is because there are so many activities to get involved in, plus numerous suggestions for interesting places to visit in this part of New South Wales.

Things to Do on Holiday in Nelson Bay, Australia

If you enjoy surfing, you are going to love holidays in Nelson Bay! You will find that this coast is almost completely devoted to this adrenaline-pumping water sport and there are opportunities to get some tuition if you are a real novice. Other activities to consider in the area include swimming in designated zones, canoeing, water skiing, jet skiing, diving, sailing and pleasure boat rides. The coast is begging for you to enjoy some leisurely and scenic strolls and there are a few national parks in this part of NSW for nature spotting and more intense hiking excursions.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Nelson Bay, Australia

You cannot come to Nelson Bay without grabbing the chance to catch sight of whales or dolphins in this part of the world - in fact, there are organised trips that can be booked for this exact reason within the main town centre. Another popular tourist attraction to visit during your holidays in Nelson Bay is the lighthouse known as The Nelson Head Light, which dates from the late-nineteenth century. You will only be around 60 km away from the large city of Newcastle and this journey can be taken by rail, if you do not have access to your own car. You could also travel south to Sydney, although it is recommended that you set off very early in order to make the most of such an excursion. Again, this journey can be done via road or rail.

Weather in Nelson Bay, Australia

The weather for your holidays in Nelson Bay is best compared with the Mediterranean. This means that it is relatively mild throughout the year and the chance of snow during winter on the coast is zero. Having said this, rainfall here is quite a lot higher than most Mediterranean resorts and this is fairly evenly distributed across the four seasons. Average temperatures should easily reach the high-twenties degrees Celsius during the summer; often even higher. During the winter, this is more likely to be in the late-teens degrees.
