For the first time, The Retreat Port Stephens is giving people the chance to name their own price on stays at the secluded retreat during August, 2018.

Offering significant savings, the new concept gives the power to the guests on determining the cost of their stay. The Retreat Port Stephens has set a benchmark on the lowest rate possible and all guests have to do is name their price. If the price is above the benchmark, they can book that price and if it is below, The Retreat will invite you to offer another price.

Nestled in bushland next to Australia’s largest sand dunes which stretch 32km long, 1.2km wide and up to 50m high between the property and the ocean, The Retreat Port Stephens is the perfect sanctuary to visit in late winter.

August is an ideal time to visit the ‘blue water paradise’ of Port Stephens with highlights including:

* Local restaurants and eateries showcasing a bounty of the best local cuisine, for which the region is famous, during Port Stephens’ ‘Love Seafood’ month in August.

* Whale watching cruises during the migration of an estimated 30,000 humpback whales

* 4WD tours over the huge sand dunes

* Get in the water with safe sharks and rays at Irukandji Shark and Ray Centre

* Scenic bushwalks, golf, paddle-boarding and local markets

The special ‘Name Your Price’ offer is only available for stays during August, 2018, and bookings will open from July 1, 2018. The deal is for a minimum, two-night stay and the benchmark price is based on two guests in a cabin or four guests in a bungalow. Additional guests can stay for an extra $35 per person, per night.
