I am a weekend wanderer. There is a great way to spend a weekend and that's visiting the great places we have here in the Hunter. Keep an eye on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Wkndwanderer

Newcastle's northerly suburb of Stockton has many great attractions that remain mostly under appreciated. Many Australians, including many Novocastrians are unaware about Stockton's vast history.
Besides being a contributor to Newcastle's coal history by having much of its land mass being made up from "ballast" from ships from all over the globe, Stockton almost became the main city with Newcastle one of its suburbs.
Stockton beach also has quite a unique history of its own. The beach was, and remains today, a very significant place for the Worimi people as traditional custodians of this area.
Over the past ten years or so people have been finding the attractions of Stockton and Stockton beach in particular. Many visitors to our area have been looking for quality places to stay so they can spend time enjoying the beach, fishing spots and the other attractions of this beautiful suburb.
Stockton Beach Holiday Park has grown to meet this demand. The park was formerly known as Stockton Caravan Park and has spent a lot of time and money to become a major holiday park in the area.
Located neatly tucked away between Stockton Surf Club and the Stockton Break Wall, Stockton Beach Holiday Park has powered sites available for your caravan or holiday cabins to let.
Be warned that this is such a popular spot now that you will need to book well in advance. Further information and online bookings can be made here.
Why? With Stockton Beach Holiday Park right on the beachfront of Stockton Beach, our holiday park offers 32 kilometres of white sand stretching from Stockton to Anna Bay, an excellent patrolled swimming, surfing and fishing beach.
