There are three main things that you can in enjoy in Newcastle. They are :
→ Enjoying the Beaches : - Australia's sixth largest city, Newcastle boasts some of Australia's best beaches. Nobbys, Newcastle, Bar, Dixon Park, Merewether and Stockton Beaches are all within 5 km of the city centre. All six beaches are patrolled and offer your family a safe place to swim and relax. Alternatively you can enjoy the protection of our ocean baths. Newcastle's spectacular coastline and pristine beaches have been celebrated with the creation of the Bathers Way, a five kilometer coastal walk that starts at Nobbys and finishes at Merewether Beach. Experiencing the remarkable Bathers Way should be a must during any visit to Newcastle.
→ Harbour Sights : - Newcastle is built around a large working harbour, the entrance to which is guarded by Nobbys Lighthouse and Breakwater. The adjacent foreshore area is the perfect place to while away the hours watching the busy harbour traffic while enjoying a drink or meal in one of the harbourside cafes, bars or restaurants. Large expanses of grassy parklands on the harbour's edge are perfect for a relaxing family picnic. Mingle with the hundreds of Novocastrians who flock to the foreshore each weekend for recreational activities such as kite flying, roller blading, jogging or bike riding.
→ City Nights : - If you think just because the sun has gone down and there is nothing to do, you are really in the dark. Home to some of the finest entertainment venues on Australia's east coast, you can catch the very best of live performers from around the country and overseas. Newcastle offers something for everyone, whether you want to dance to the beats of some of Australia's best DJ's, enjoy your favourite food or drink, or find a place where you can simply relax with family and friends.
