I'm a freelance writer/photographer/filmmaker living in stunning Lake Macquarie. I am always on the look out for budget things to do for large families.

Nuts Naturally
If you venture out towards Williamtown, then a visit to Medowie Macadamias is a must. I found this little gem by accident when we were trying to find a place to turn around.

The Plantation is located in Port Stephens, between Williamtown and Raymond Terrace about 35 minutes north of Newcastle and just over 2 hours from Sydney.

Medowie Macadamias was established in 1980. The current owners have been on the property for around 13 years, and are involved in every stage of the macadamias' production process making it a fully family owned and run establishment.

The plantation has 5 different varieties of nuts growing on the plantation's lush 12 acres. You can take the 30 minute tour of the plantation viewing the production process, however you will need to book in advance.

There is a wonderful little cafe which is open from 9 am - 2 pm serving breakfast and lunch. A cup of coffee is around $3.50 and the meals range from $6 - $18. If you don't want to have a main meal you can drop in and try their delightful desserts.
