With breathtaking views of Shoal Bay sitting just a casual stroll away, the recently renovated Shoal Bay Country Club is the Central Coast’s newest highlight.

Sitting on the bank of Shoal Bay and just streets away from Tomaree National Park, Shoal Bay Country Club has re-launched with a modern, decadent venue perfect for any approaching season.

Boasting their exquisite ocean views; after their recent $6 million refurbishment there’s no doubt that their values, intricate cocktails and distinguished meals haven’t changed.

Sitting an hour out of Newcastle CBD, or just 2.5 hours from Sydney, Shoal Bay Country Club makes the perfect getaway trip. The convenience of its location is perfect for those dreaming of soaking up the ambience and lifestyle of the Central Coast. Of course with the substantial menu, the whimsical views and 80’s celebratory décor, Shoal Bay Country Club makes the trip all worthwhile.

The extensive menu which stretches across from Breakfast, to Lunch and a mix of cocktails in between; there’s no doubt that Executive Chef, Atick Elahi, understands how to cater for their various demographic of locals and holidaymakers visiting Shoal Bay.

“We have created a menu with a wide variety of culinary styles to enable us to cater from breakfast through to those late-night dessert cravings,” he says.

Considering its location, there’s no hesitation that the freshest, seasonal ingredients are inspired and utilized throughout each meal. From the cinnamon scrolls made daily, to the wild berries topped on the Bircher Muesli ($15), and even the locally caught blue swimmer crab, octopus and other fresh seafood found within the Hot & Cold Platter ($119).

With broad experience in establishments across Sydney, newest owner Andrew Lazarus, believes that the refurbished Shoal Bay Country Club will become a historical and loving venue, just as the original SBCC was and their long line of history dating back to the 1930’s.

Leaving the artistic walls of the venue, apart from not only your feed but your stomach being full, there’s no doubt that guests will fall equally in love with the area. Considering that the Port Stephens region praises their nature walks, iconic beaches as well as the whale and dolphin watching – a visit to Shoal Bay Country Club will in no doubt be the perfect holiday in itself.

After paying a visit to SBCC, visitors are welcome to explore the nearby Worimi Conservation Lands or walk through the slopes of Fort Tomaree.
