Be a Tourist at home – Newcastle

p>Hit the highway and check out Newcastle...with the help of local Michelle Cranston I did a quick survey of this vibrant city to our north. Some tips check out these suburbs Hamilton - most of this suburb is heritage - Nobby's Beach, Carrington, Cook's Hill - gorgeous - Islington for vintage and the stunning Merewether.

Nestled on the beautiful, sun-drenched eastern coastline of New South Wales, just over two hours north of Sydney, Newcastle is a vibrant city bursting with things to do, places to stay and fun to be had.

Spectacular beaches and coastal scenery, with ocean baths and some of the country’s best surfing spots, are only just the start. They have museums and art galleries, rich history and architecture to keep the most ardent culture vultures intrigued. Then there’s a dedication to coffee to attract envious glances from Melbourne, a thriving bar and restaurant scene, and on-trend designer shops and artisan markets.

For those who enjoy live entertainment, you certainly won’t be disappointed, with almost 80 venues offering live music throughout the week, while the beautiful Civic Theatre offers a whole host of live entertainment. Best of all, you’ll find all of this within walking distance from the CBD.

Newcastle is an outdoor, action-packed city – and whether you’re visiting alone or with friends or family, from near or far, there’s plenty to do in the fresh air. From walking along the spectacular coastline walk Bathers Way to cycling our harbourside destination Honeysuckle, surfing the waves, cruising the harbour or simply enjoying one of the many beaches, there’s an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy.
