Just a leisurely two hour drive north of Sydney lies Newcastle, a vibrant city built around the beaches and the harbour. Newcastle”s fabulous beaches, laid-back lifestyle, fascinating harbour and eclectic arts scene have helped the city triumph over its industrial background. The 200 year old city is undergoing a renaissance – many of the former working wharves becoming places of play and the air of excitement at the transformation is palpable.
Newcastle Harbour is the hub of this maritime city and reflects its distinctive and unique personality. All tastes are catered for along The Boardwalk at Harbour Square – from fine dining to coffee or tapas.
Nobbys Beach, adjacent to the entrance of Newcastle Harbour, marks the start of the Bathers Way, a spectacular five kilometres signposted coastal walk which stretches to Merewether Beach and takes in five spectacular beaches, historic ocean baths and unforgettable views.
