About

As Australia's second oldest city and largest coal exporting harbor in the world, Newcastle is a region rich with unique history, quirky arts culture and a thriving dining and shopping scene. A top ten city in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel guide and an International Festivals and Events City award recipient; there are few cities in the world beyond Newcastle that can say their city centre is surrounded by eight beaches.

Take advantage of all that the Hunter Region has to offer including Stockton Beach, just a short ferry ride away, featuring the largest sand dunes in the southern hemisphere. Newcastle is the ideal place to catch some culture, satisfy your appetite, and ride some waves. Between the museums, shops, dining, bushland, beaches, and historic sites, Newcastle's got it all.
