Venue and Accomodation


The conference and networking functions, including the 2021 NFMRI Awards Night, will take place at The Anchorage Hotel & Spa in Port Stephens, New South Wales, a 30-minute drive from Newcastle.

Breezy seaside style at its finest, The Anchorage Hotel & Spa offers luxurious absolute waterfront accommodation on the pristine shores of Port Stephens – from spacious rooms to mezzanine-style loft suites and an exclusive villa – along with world-class Spa Lucca, heated family and adult exclusive pools, and decadent dining options.

The Hamptons-style guesthouses face north over beautiful Port Stephens towards Corrie Island National Reserve. A balcony or verandah adjoin all accommodation, and most have uninterrupted water views. All rooms come well equipped with modern amenities, featuring an ensuite bathroom and complimentary WiFi.


All bookings are to be made directly with resorts/hotels by delegates. NFMRI is not arranging accomodation on behalf of delegates or handling payments for this.
