Where to stay in the sleepy NSW coastal town of Pacific Palms

NSW is bursting at the seams with fantastic holiday ideas and locations — from its bushland to the coast, and from action to adventure. But sometimes you just want to check in and tune out from life’s stresses and daily worries. Pacific Palms, a sleepy coastal town on the NSW mid-north coast, is just that place!

Pacific Palms takes you back to your childhood holidays, where the biggest decision was whether to go for a swim or just relax on the beach. If you’re looking for a great place to stay, just a stone’s throw from Blueys and Boomerang beaches, head straight to Moby’s Beachside Retreat. Offering a range of architecturally-designed one, two and three- bedroom beach houses, the resort also boasts a pool, a day spa, a tennis court, and a fantastic in-house restaurant: Moby’s on Red Gum.

Heading up the Moby’s kitchen is Head Chef and local lad, Jesse Lemon. Lemon’s menu focuses on using fresh, seasonal, and local produce wherever possible, as well as plenty of locally-sourced seafood. One of the most interesting local products featured on the Moby’s menu, is fresh buffalo mozzarella from the nearby Burraduc Farm, just down the road from the retreat. Burraduc Farm produces a range of award-winning cheeses (including their buffalo Farmhouse Mozzarella and the Burraduc Dolce Nina) which can be purchased on site at the farm gate, at farmers’ markets and through distributors including Feather and Bone (based out of Marrickville).
