Welcome to Seashells Beachfront Resort. People who love this place call it “the most family friendly beachfront resort on the New South Wales mid north coast”.
Just over three hours drive from Sydney but a world away, it’s located in the Great Lakes region, where the magnificent eastern dividing range forms a backdrop to one of the most dazzling stretches of coast you will ever see.
Close to Forster and Taree, Seashells Beachfront Resort is ideally situated between bush and sea, amidst some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches and national parks. A spectacular venue for beach fishing, surfing, rainforest walks, dolphin watching and chilled-out family fun.
Diamond Beach, the jewel of Hallidays Point, offers 5 kilometres of pristine golden sand, which stretches from Saltwater northward to Red Head in the south. Seashells offers 1 and 2 bedroom self contained apartments perfect for a family holiday or private getaway.
All resort facilities are free and include large swimming pool and toddlers pool, adults only spa and children’s spa, full and half size tennis courts, squash court, billiards, table tennis, volleyball, fun golf course, children’s playground, sauna, spas, exercise room, a covered BBQ area, recreation room, free internet kiosk and Austar.
Seashells is the perfect location for exploring the nearby Great Lakes and Manning Valley areas which combine to offer a wealth of leisure and sightseeing activities.
Everything at Seashells has been built around ensuring families have a safe and happy holiday. There are no roads to cross, only a few steps and you are right on Diamond Beach, with its golden sands just waiting for you to enjoy.
And there’s heaps to do without even having to leave the resort - something for everyone from swimming to fishing; from bike riding to scootering; from tennis to squash; from golf to billiards; and so much more. The kids will love the playground, Mum soaking in the spa and Dad not having to drive anywhere and having a beer around the barbie.
Close to the Manning Valley, Great Lakes, National Parks, Rainforests, the spectacular Ellenborough Falls and some of the best beaches in the world for swimming, surfing, fishing, boat hire, dolphin and whale watching. On terra-firma engage in shopping and wine tasting - it is all nearby.
Only 5 mins drive to Hallidays Point Village you will find a supermarket, chemist, butcher, bakery, and restaurants and takeaways.
For the golfer, four courses are within 20 minutes drive - Tallwoods, Hallidays Point, Taree, Forster and Tuncurry.
For the avid bird watcher, some 250 species of birds have been identified in the area and for history buffs a short drive takes you to the historic country towns of Wauchope, Wingham, Tinonee and Stroud or call in to one of the many wineries in the region.
At the heart of this region is the Myall Lakes National Park, one of the most visited in NSW. It is a spectacular blend of lakes, coastal forests and pristine beaches offering a truly natural experience.
There is literally a lifetime of things to do in this incredible part of Australia. Take the track to the top of Cape Hawke for 360 degree views of the lakes, ocean and mountain; explore Wallis Lake by boat; tantalise your taste buds with fresh local seafood at one of the many restaurants/cafes.
Get up close and personal with a dolphin-watch from the breakwall or cruise boat or swim with them in the wild; join a fishing charter and test your angling skills or hire a tinny and just throw in a line.
Marvel at the view from Yacaaba Head; spot a koala in the wild; paddle down the Myall River from Bombah Point; ride the giant sand dunes in Myall Lakes National Park.
Take the Tea Gardens riverside art walk and then grab lunch by the water’s edge; join a boat trip to Broughton Island for the best snorkelling on the North Coast; reconnect with nature on a bird watching tour or guided wildflower walk.
