Mid-Autumn is a great time to take the entire family away.
If you are Sydney or Hunter based the trip is so short the kids won’t even think to ask “ARE WE THERE YET”. Bring the bikes or hire them locally and check out the local village and beyond. Check out the Coast Walk which starts at Putty Beach about 15 minutes by car from your room.
Cinema Paradiso is a 10 minute walk from the Resort as are 10 restaurants of many cuisines. Cafes just across the road to while away the private minutes that you steal away during family holidays. Ice skating and shopping are only a 25 minute drive away.
The Winters are mild by the ocean, so if shivering the day away is not for you, a holiday here by the coast probably is. Load up the mountain bikes and the hiking shoes and show the kids another side to life.
Life is not just about the outdoors here. The local movie cinema 'Cinema Paradiso' is an experience in itself, bringing a “Little piece of Italy to the Coast”. Great food including a one hat restaurant at Bell’s Resort, Killcare is close on hand. Have the Winter experience ice skating at Erina or sit on a headland and watch the surging winter seas crash onto the coast.
Spring has sprung. The whales are migrating and you might even get a glimpse as they pass through off the coast. The wetsuit clad teenagers can surf all day and fall into bed exhausted each night. The little ones can play on the beach, making sand castles to play out their royal fantasies.
Wild flowers, bush walks, bike rides and strolls along the beach are simple ways to fill in your days here during Spring.
Summer, Summer, Summer. Long days and beautiful nights.
Perfectly positioned across the road from safe family water ways ideal for swimming, paddling and boating. A ten minute walk to the ocean beaches for surfing, kite surfing, jet skiing and paddling. Clean sandy beaches and excellent picnic and barbeque facilities all at your doorstep.
Boat hire and fishing are also popular Summer time activities at the beach.
Autumn is the best time of the year to visit...we reckon anyhow!
Wake up to find that the Easter Bunny has been and left orbs of chocolaty goodness for you and the family to eat. Autumn is a great time by the beach. The water is still warm for a dip. The beach walks stretch across three beaches that join one after the next. A movie afternoon at the Cinema Paradiso or great food and coffee from the nearby cafes and restaurants await.
These rooms won’t last so book now, without delay.
Winter at Ettalong is amazing.
You are guaranteed to be treated to clear blue skies and sunny warm days and a barbeque by the bay or dramatic seas and skies with a crisp chill in the air and fish and chips walking along the beach. Order your discount movie tickets for the family or go alone. Take a scenic drive through the natural bushland fringed coastal roads or stay at the resort and take advantage of the cuddly weather and relax. It’s all a whole lot of Winter fun.
Always a popular time so book now to avoid disappointment.
Spring on the Coast – perfect one day….. awesome the next.
Get out in nature and trek through the surrounding bushland and see the bush come alive with a myriad of flowering plants and the birds, insects and animals that come out to play. Bushwalk or mountain bike around Pearl Beach. Hire a bike and explore the local village and cycle track. Head over to Patonga and check out a couple of galleries and a pub lunch at the popular Patonga Hotel.
Rooms sell quickly so it is never too early to book.
