I was with some relatives when visiting Forster and went particularly to this Stockland for Dick Smith to replace a lost charger. We were immediately approached by the sales staff to offer assistance.
Unfortunately, the only product they had to suit me was way to expensive (Belkin iphone 5 charger for $50,) but the rellies managed to wander out with a new phone, ($69) so they were happy.
Popped in here to scrounge for a phone charger, but the store was pretty busy and I was unable to be served. There's limited stock tho so easy to find what I was after - still unfortunately over twice the price I managed to find elsewhere.
Was recently dopey enough to leave my charger behind at a hotel and had to head off to find a new one. The local electronics store wanted $50 for an iphone 5 charger, but managed to score the power source and cable for $17 in this KMart insteadh.
This is a lovely store with helpful staff.
Was lured in by the big sale signs recently and came out much lighter of wallet, but with four new pieces for the wardrobe.
Love my new tops and had to wear the great red skirt the next day.
Far too easy to part with money here in one of my favourite dress stores.
A great Westfield if you're looking to make a dent in your account!
I was on the hunt for some Napoleon cosmetics here recently, but just had to stop at DJ's, Oroton and Diana Ferrari as well.
Parking was easy and the stores are all well laid out and easy to navigate for a first time visitor. First three hours is free too.
Good sized food court with all the usual offerings too.
Enjoyed a comfortable stay for one night recently.
Had work in Newcastle, found check-in smooth. Was texted very clear instructions on how to access parking at the rear of the building and gain entry.
Bed comfortable, amenities clean and kitchenette well stocked.
All you could ask for in a little self contained serviced apartment.
I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Vittorio's when in the HV for work.
Chose the veal scallopini ($20) and sat close to the fire for a cosy lunch with a glass of local Sem Sav Blanc ($7.)
Meal was well cooked, over crisp asparagus spears with a creamy mushroom sauce.
I was first to arrive at 12 but by the time I left the place was nearly full, so very popular.
Would be back.
Enjoyed a couple of lattes and the chorizo eggs here for brekky.
The chorizo on Turkish with poached eggs was great, and really filling.
There's indoor seating and covered outdoor seating out the back.
I elected for out the back but there were a few seriously bad smells wafting through at different times.
Otherwise, a nice brekky.
A really funky little boutique in the heart of Darby Street offering a great selection of clothes, shoes and bags, books & music, sunnies and more.
Worth popping in for a browse if you're having a wander in Darby Street, Newcastle.
I'm not the world's greatest junk food fan but after 30 hours travel, navigating customs and trawling through airline food, a Quarter Pounder from the closest Maccas was the best!
Great service at the drive through and a hot fresh burger. Excellent!
The Marriott has been renovated fairly recently and the makeover looks great. Citrique is great for a meal in the lobby, there's Sake bar and other options for in house dining.
Otherwise, lounge out by the lagoon and order a drink.
Great choice for weddings and corporate functions.
A great Gold Coast hotel.
Minimal charges for parking apply.
Sublime carries beautiful homewares and if you're looking for something a bit different for a gift you're sure to find it here.
Great window displays. Really caught my eye with the lovely soaps and teapots.
Great location on the Brissy River and convenient if working in Eagle Street.
A little pricey, but clean and good options for a quick drink and snack or sit down meal.
Popular with the local corporate crowd and can get really busy!
Like to have a browse through Adairs when new Manchester is required. Staff are always on hand to help find what you need. Good basics to the really luxe options in sheets and quilt covers.
Great options to accessorise also.
Good brasserie style feed here at the THBC. The fish was lovely and pizza great.
Sandwiches and prawn cocktails also available.
Reasonable prices and basic wines.
Lots of seating but parking can be at a premium on site.
Always good for a quick latte or a snack when waiting for a flight.
This is the best cafe in the airport and a latte is usually on my hit list before a flight to avoid the percolated mud often served onboard.
Quick friendly service and really good coffee.
