Since opening their doors nearly 12 months ago, Shoal Bay Country Club has earned the reputation of being Port Stephens' premium food, beverage and entertainment venue.
It’s no surprise then that owners Eastern Hotels Group are now expanding their Port Stephens venue to include Shoal Bay Convention Centre, incorporating Whitesands, a space ideal for beachfront weddings and corporate events.
"Shoal Bay Convention Centre is a stunning beachfront location that connects wedding and corporate requirements with the incredible amenity of the Shoal Bay area," hotelier Peter Lazarus said.
"The purpose-built function centre can cater for all medium to large conferences and events, features state-of-the-art facilities including multi-functional spaces that can be transformed into three separate rooms or one or two larger combinations and ample break-out or trade-show areas. It contains a large, fully-equipped kitchen and two bars dedicated to catering for small and large groups."
