“a place to shop, eat, drink and relax”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

A variety of restaurants serving a wide variety of food choices i.e. seafood, thai, japanese, pizzas, steaks, etc etc including nice ice creams and some great spots just to have a coffee or a beer and wine. See the world go by and have a look at the comings and goings of the yachts and tourist vessels in the marina.
Sometimes there's extra activities on...music...markets...etc etc

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Hadn't been to Nelson Bay for some 20 years and had no expectations.
It was relaxing at the Marina, not overcrowded or too commercial but still a nice water environment and lots of choices of cafes and restaurants.
My only gripe was that I couldn't find a cafe open early in the morning and had to eat in a franchise pastry shop in town but apart from that, an enjoyable couple of hours.

“Nice way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Spent a few hours looking around the marina, went upstairs to the wood fired pizza pace for lunch, which was nice, great views.. Also has free music / singers on a Saturday & Sunday, would be very easy to settle in with a wine & enjoy the music with the view...
