Newcastle

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.

Just a short drive away, discover 150 cellar doors in Australia’s most popular wine region, the Hunter Valley. Or visit nearby Port Stephens to enjoy golden sandy beaches and sparkling aqua waterways that are home to over 150 bottlenose dolphins and whale watching during the annual migration. 

Find great accommodation options in Port Stephens & Hunter Valley.
