While heading to the beach might be the last thing on your mind in this chilly weather, Port Stephens is giving you a pretty convincing reason to head north this winter. Its annual month-long Love Seafood festival celebrates all things local, fresh and from the ocean — and sees seafood aficionados flock to the coastal town every August. From fish, prawns and oysters to crab and lobster, the seafood from around the region is mighty fine and well worth the two-and-a-half-hour drive from Sydney.

Running over the month of August, Love Seafood is an indulgent food fair complete with long lunches, degustation dinners, galas, cruises and even town-wide jazz performances. If you make the journey up the coast, you'll be tucking in at top-notch restaurants, sharpening your cooking skills at weekly cooking classes and tasting seafood aplenty from local vendors. Once you've had your fill of local fare, you can head behind the scenes for a tour of fish farming and aquaculture, too.

To entice you even more, we've teamed up with The Anchorage Hotel & Spa to give one lucky winner (and their mate or date) a night at its Hamptons-inspired digs. You'll be staying right on the water, with each room decked out with plenty of seaside (but incredibly luxe) charm and ocean views. You can claim your prize at any point until Sunday, September 1 (between Sundays and Thursdays).

Plus, we're throwing in breakfast with bottomless bubbles and a two-course lunch at The Anchorage's Galley Kitchen — with seafood galore, of course.

Love Seafood will take over Port Stephens from Thursday, August 1 to Sunday, September1. If you're keen for a getaway and stuffing yourself silly with seafood — which you obviously are —  enter your details below to be in the running.
