Spotlight On: Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort

Looking for a break from the city? Just two hours out from Sydney and one hour from Newcastle, Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort offers the perfect escape.

Nestled in Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley Cypress Lakes sits on 300 acres of beautiful hinterland, offering an unspoiled view of rolling green hills and native Australian bush, fringed by the Brokenback Mountain Range. The resort offers a variety of accommodation through its self contained villas and suites; all equipped with modern furnishings, kitchenettes and, of course, private balconies with sweeping views of the bush or hills of the Valley.

The expansive property offers an equally expansive range of facilities; the Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club is ranked as Australia’s ‘Best Golf Hotel’, with views of the surrounding hinterland at every hole.

Located next door to Cypress Lakes, The Elysia Wellness Retreat is the picture of calm, and completely caters to your personal health and wellness journey. Elysia offers dedicated personal programs, seminars and workshops that work in tandem with the beautiful facilities on offer, such as the heated Watsu pool in the spa or the gym and basketball court. A highlight is the morning Tai Chi sessions held atop Meditation Hill, overlooking the sunrise and surrounding hinterland.
