Mirvac has worked for three years on the site, with the Sebel Newcastle Beach opening in November. It’s luxurious (4½ stars, concierge, sauna, gym, parking and all the trimmings) and slick, with fantastically friendly service and chic extras such as stylish blue and white beach towels. The food (and coffee) from its restaurant, Bistro Dalby, is fresh and delicious. The only fault we can find is there are not enough rooms with balconies, although there are fabulous floor-to-ceiling windows.

It’s not hard to see why. For the past few years, the once laid-back surfie town has been working eagerly on an image overhaul.
