Spoil mum on her one special day
Mother's Day is a wonderful day to celebrate - for kids, it is a special day to spoil their mum and show her how much they care. For mums, grandparents, mother figures and carers, it is a treasured day to receive hand-made cards and gifts, whilst receiving lots of cuddles and kisses. Does it get much better than that?

There are a variety of ways to spend some quality time with mum on Mother's Day around Nelson Bay - such as family BBQs, getting out on the water, or breakfast at her favourite cafe. If you are looking for a special lunch venue, however, keep reading for some more ideas ...

For Mums Who Love A Water View

1/ Little Beach Boat House is a popular waterfront venue at Little Beach, with decadent seafood, fruity cocktails and friendly staff. Book in early for Mother's Day, as places will fill up fast! Ensure you request a water view table. See here for details.

2/ The Anchorage Hotel in Corlette is a 5 Star Hotel with water views and spectacular restaurants - each with a view of the glistening waters of Port Stephens. Each year they host a Mother's Day High Tea or 3 Course Lunch - or both. It is the ultimate destination to take mum to feel special. If you are also looking for a gift for her, why not book her in for a 1-hour massage or facial after lunch at Spa Lucca, located on-site. You will be in her good books all the way until next year! See here for details.

For Mums With Young Kids

3/ Shoal Bay Country Club is a particularly family-friendly venue on Mother's Day and every weekend - with kids activities each Sunday between 12pm - 2pm. This colourful venue has stunning water views of Shoal Bay from the first-floor patio, which instantly makes you feel like you're on tropical, summer holiday. For Mother's Day, book a table at the Kitchen & Patio restaurant, for wood-fired pizzas, seafood and pasta from their extensive menu. They often have special events or deals for Mother's Day - see here for What's On.

* Another popular venue for families on Mother's Day is Murray's Brewing Co at Bobs Farm. They always have something happening for Mother's Day and there is plenty of room for the kids to run around on the grass. Ensure you download the Pirate Bobs Scavenger Hunt app!

For Seafood-Loving Mums

4/ The Point seafood restaurant at Soldier's Point has views over the water and fine dining touches. This venue always has a Mother's Day lunch and dinner special, to treat the mothers of Port Stephens. If you visit at dinner, you may catch the sunset over the water. Seafood is their specialty, so ensure you take your appetite! See here for details.

5/ Rick Stein seafood restaurant at Bannister Port Stephens, also at Soldiers Point, is another popular Mother's Day venue - particularly if your mum loves seafood and likes Rick Stein! This restaurant has only been open for a year, with great success. After your meal, why not go for a walk along Soldiers Point Jetty or have a drink at Cheeky Dog Bar downstairs. See here for details.
