Why should the kids have all the fun?
If you like to get out of the city and enjoy the great outdoors, but don't like to rough it too much, consider Point Wolstoncroft Sport and Recreation Centre. They have accommodation for small families to large groups.

Our group filled the 28 person lodge comfortably, each 4 person bedroom with it's own ensuite. It has a long dining table that sat us all, plus couches and a much used ping pong table, with adults banishing the kids to have a turn. The living space itself has glass doors that opened so it has a light and airy 'outdoor' vibe without the issue of rain.

For a fee, you can hire an instructor who will take you through the activities of your choice. There is sailing and a high ropes course, though we opted for archery, kayaking, rock climbing and everybody's favourite, the giant swing. This is a rope you were harnessed to, then swung like a pendulum after a small free fall. Our group ranged from 5 to 65 and we all loved it!

There is tennis, giant games, petanque, volley ball, a chip & putt golf hole and of course plenty of swimming in the large pool, which even had a shaded section. There's even a large children's playground with plenty of equipment to cover a broad range of ages.

We chose to do our own catering, but there are options where they cater for the group. There is also a BBQ shelter that has a fridge and can be booked for functions, as well as a hall with stunning water views for a more formal occasion.

For a great break away from the city, with room to roam or scooter around, look into Point Wolstoncroft Sport and Recreation Centre. There truly is something to appeal to everyone.

If this is "State owned", why is there no public access to the area ? I understand payment for use of facilities like car park, sporting equipment, accommodation etc but, why can't the public walk through state land ? And, what are the consequences if I do ? I think this is appalling !!! We can use Lake Munmorah state recreational park (for a fee for use of car park and rds) by walking through but, not Point Wolstoncroft, WHY ? We all pay state taxes. I WANT AN EXPLANATION and will seek it further from our l9cal member.
