Corlette's neighbourhood is home to Anchorage Port Stephens where luxury meets the sea located right on the water overlooking the marina with two restaurants and a decadent day spa. While at the neighbourhood of Salamander Bay, Oaks Pacific Blue Resort with Australia's largest swimming pool offers rooms where you can dive right in straight from your balcony and perfect for the family or those after something more casual with fast food outlets, a shopping centre, tavern and ten pin bowling nearby.
The beautiful headland walk, following the water from Corlette beach to the Anchorage, is not to be missed. Drop in for a morning coffee or afternoon drink and, if you look up, you could be lucky enough to see local koalas along the way. You can follow the water and walk all the way into Nelson Bay. You’ll find gorgeous parks and reserves dotted along the water's edge around the bays which are perfect for family picnics and BBQs, most with playgrounds for the kids. Or, if you prefer some exercise, there are paths and bike lanes which will take you along the water's edge from Corlette to Salamander Bay.
Salamander Bay Square is a thriving shopping centre with Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, Aldi as well as a range of specialty stores and a food court. You’ll find a range of casual food plus entertainment in the centre, with Tomaree Aquatic Centre and Toboggan Hill Park nearby.
