Newcastle Area for Christmas

Hi all,

i'm currently planning a trip to Australia for most of December. I've got either side of Christmas sorted, and will be travelling down the east coast from Brisbane (17th) to Sydney (28th).

At the moment, it's looking like the two of us will be in the Newcastle area for Christmas - so I'm planning on booking somewhere for the 24th and 25th December, and travel over to the Blue Mountains on the 26th... subject to fires :(

Ideally, we'd like to be near to the beach, as however corny it may seem I'd like to spend Christmas on the beach hang a barbie and a stroll!

Could you guys recommend any good places to stay? Budget is $150-250 a night - it is Christmas after all and I'd prefer to spend it somewhere nicer :)

Thanks for any help and tips!

No. Manly is not close-ish to Newcastle. It is like 100 miles away. A bit like staying in Bristol as it is close-ish to London.
