TRAVEL ALERT PRIOR TO VISITING
Rediscovering and restoring the much-loved Salamander Shores location into a stylish boutique getaway, recalling the sunny day holiday vibes of the sixties and seventies.
Bannisters has preserved the bones of the iconic retro motel and built in its place a vibrant four-star hotel experience in a classic destination. Surrounded by water, koala habitat and a sense of peace and seclusion from hotel to horizon, Bannisters Port Stephens reimagines the stunning outlooks and impeccable menus, with lovingly restored and renovated hotel/motel style rooms and suites across four levels.
Bannisters Port Stephens is home to the newest addition to Rick Stein’s Australian venture, serving the freshest local seafood, simply cooked. For those who aren’t fine-dining inclined, our Terrace Bar serving modern-Australian fare is the perfect place to kick back and drift away by the infinity pool with endless views and classic cocktails. Or simply relax and enjoy great food, drinks and fun at Bannisters Tavern... a family friendly pub with live music, sports and an awesome beer garden!
