The Anchorage

An iconic destination for an elegant, five-star wedding

Five-star luxury resort The Anchorage, set on the idyllic waters of Port Stephens in New South Wales, has undergone an 18-month, multi-million-dollar renovation, modernising the hotel into a class of its own, destined for global acclaim as one of Australia’s finest beachfront wedding and holiday destinations.

For more than 25 years, The Anchorage has been an iconic destination for elegant, five-star weddings in an unsurpassed location. Offering a magical backdrop and breathtaking indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, The Anchorage is destined to become one of Australia’s most renowned seaside wedding locations with tailor-made packages, expert assistance, pre-wedding celebrations and on and offsite experiences readily available.

Majestically positioned where the Pacific Ocean meets the Great Southern Land, The Anchorage is one of Australia’s most inspirational seaside destinations, with eight individual Hamptons’ style structures sitting perfectly between the cliff side and the ocean.

Conveniently located just 2.5 hours north of Sydney and 30 minutes from Newcastle Airport, the hotel and spa offers relaxed waterfront accommodation, beautiful dining, leisure and conference spaces.

Among the property’s newly-added world-class facilities include iconic restaurants The Wild Herring and The Galley Kitchen with alfresco and indoor dining; Hemingway’s Bar showcasing some of the world’s rarest and unusual whiskies with tasting experiences available; tranquil retreat Spa Lucca with luxury treatments, international products, spa and steam facilities; two pools including an adults-only infinity pool; and fitness centre with what is probably the world’s best view to work out to.

Boasting sunrise to sunset panoramic water views, the 80 luxuriously-appointed suites, ranging from spacious studios to one and two bed rooms, showcase chic resort-style interior styling, each with its own private balcony or terrace, luxurious king beds, upscale French amenities, boutique minibar, and a wealth of extras.
