Sir Francis Drake - Heatherbrae is situated on the Pacific Highway just south of Raymond Terrace, and only 1.5 hours north of Sydney. We are conveniently located for our Corporate travellers. We are located only a 10 minute drive from Newcastle Airport and we are a fantastic base for leisure guests exploring the region. Our 40 rooms are among the largest motel rooms in NSW. All rooms are ground floor.
