Default Haulout facilities??

Just had the most interesting email from the guy selling a Samson 56' C-Baron on eBay last week. He has offered me the yacht free providing I take over the repairs and costs. The downside is that it has a NSW Maritime order to be hauled out immediately, painted and have the masts stepped before they will allow it to sit on a swing mooring anywhere in Sydney.

Del and I went and took a look last weekend and she seems to have lost part of the keel and lists about 15 degrees to port. The owner says he has never had her out of the water but admits it may be possible. So between these issues and the fact that I'm going north in a week, I need to put her on a hardstand for several months, then have DIY access when I return.

Does anyone know of a facility between Newcastle and Wollongong that has humane prices? I emailed Noakes several days ago and have yet to receive a reply but I assume they're going to be top dollar.
