Newcastle on the north coast of NSW is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, with a busy working harbour at its heart and a string of golden beaches stretching north and south.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy Newcastle’s great beach lifestyle - surfing lessons, fishing and beach walks. Make sure you take the scenic Bathers Way, an easy 5-km coastal walk that takes you from Nobbys Light House to Merewether where you can go for a swim in the outdoor ocean baths.
Newcastle has a well established food scene. Highlights are Beaumont Street in Hamilton and Honeysuckle, once an industrial wharf and now a smart plaza with restaurants, cafés and bars. Australia’s most popular wine region, the Hunter Valley, is just a short drive away.
