Brisbane-Newcastle mid stop HELP!

My husband and I will be attempting to drive to Newcastle with a toddler and a newborn :)

We decided to break the trip in half each way, so ideally we would only drive a total of 4 to 5 hours in a one day stretch.

We are looking to stop overnight but where??!

Coffs Harbour is the middle point but seems expensive and busy.

Does anyone have any suggestions. Ideally we'd like to be close to the beach and have an apartment or room with a Kitchenette.

Thanks!

What do you consider 'expensive'?

A mention of what you're hoping to pay, or a specific budget would go a long way to what we can recommend.

I think we would be thrilled with anything under $200 for one night.

Have a look at Woolgoolga ... it's about 20 mins north of Coffs and a fairly nice little town. Accommodation is also cheaper than Coffs.

Another option is Nambucca Heads, the White ALbatross caravan park is right on the beach and has cabins for under $200 with kitchenette. http://www.whitealbatross.com.au/9543/Home/

It's only about 10minutes off the highway.

It depends when you're travelling though.....
