Things To Do

Newcastle has an abundance of experiences to offer

The port city of Newcastle may be one-tenth the size of Sydney, but Australia’s second-oldest city punches well above its weight. Superb surf beaches, historical architecture and a sun-drenched climate are only part of its charm. Fine dining, hip bars, quirky boutiques, a diverse arts scene and a laid-back attitude combine to make it well worth a couple of days of your time.
