Newcastle’s coastal haven of Stockton is now home to a collection of stylish self-contained holiday cabins, located less than 30 seconds walk to the beach.
Opened in late December 2011 as a new addition to Newcastle’s popular Stockton Beach Tourist Park, the two- and three-bedroom cabins offer the luxuries of a contemporary hotel suite in a relaxed coastal setting. With chic beach-themed interiors by renowned designer Tim Neve, cabins feature a full kitchen, spacious living room, laundry facilities and alfresco decking for entertaining. Two cabins are also wheelchair accessible.
Guests staying in a cabin have access to Stockton Beach Tourist Park’s facilities, such as free wireless internet, guest and visitor parking, outdoor electric barbeques and dining areas, and children’s playgrounds.
Located a five-minute ferry ride from Newcastle’s CBD, Stockton is renowned for its surfing beach, recreational fishing and patrolled swimming spots. The destination is also famous for its sprawling sand dunes, which are more than 32km long and up to 30 metres high – a great natural playground for four-wheel driving enthusiasts.
Stockton Beach is the site of more than 100 shipwrecks and some of the most significant wrecks are permanent fixtures along the breakwall. They can be explored via a self-guided signposted shipwreck walk, compiled by the Stockton Historical Society.
Stockton Beach Tourist Park is offering great rates on cabin stays, with two-bedroom cabins starting from $140 per night and three-bedroom cabins from $150 per night. Valid for two-night minimum stays from January 30 until April 30, 2012.
The cabins are the first stage in a $2.3 million redevelopment project being lead by The City of Newcastle, to update facilities at the popular holiday spot. Stage two of the development, which is due to get underway in 2012, will incorporate an additional 15 cabins set along the beachfront.
