The Nelson Resort is located in the heart of Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, only 30 minutes from Newcastle airport, and is the perfect all season conferencing destination. The Nelson Offers luxury accommodation, a range of excellent dining options and a brand new spacious and contemporary conference facility, not to mention the golden sandy beaches close by... the crystal clear water and calm blue skies. Spanning almost 1,000 square kilometers this stunning area offers exceptional and memorable corporate group experiences.

Experience the thrill of 4WD racing on the sand dunes, or meet the friendly resident dolphins while on one of the dolphin cruises that run all year round. Other activities include surfing, bush walks, camel rides, snorkelling, kayaking, para-sailing, and fishing.

The Nelson Bay Region has always been hugely popular with leisure tourists, and recently conference and business visitation has increased. The unveiling of Nelson Resorts conference centre has marked an exciting new era for functions and events in Nelson Bay, and we look forward to hosting you here soon.
