Find hidden gems in Newcastle

The laid back coastal suburbs of Newcastle have seen major rejuvenation in recent years, with the former industrial centre making a name for itself on foodie and surfing scenes. The city sits right on the shores of a stunning coastline, while the world-renowned vineyards of the Hunter Valley grow just a ways inland.

Enjoy a dip in the Merewether Baths — the largest ocean pool in the country — before you work up a sweat along the Newcastle Memorial Walk or dine at gastronomic breweries and bars.

Newcastle favourites

Trace the epic Newcastle coastline for ocean-based fun, then get up close and personal with native wildlife.

Merewether Baths

Australia’s largest ocean pool is a 10-minute drive from Newcastle’s CBD. No matter how many paddlers are swimming in the expansive, Merewether Baths, you’ll have plenty of floating and frolicking room with views out over the rolling waves while staying protected from the swell.

Blackbutt Nature Reserve

There are more than 10km of walking trails to explore among the 182 hectares of bushland that make up Blackbutt Nature Reserve. It’s free entry into this wildlife wonderland, where you can meet local critters, learn about native flora and fauna at exhibits, and enjoy picnics throughout the grounds.

Nobbys Head

Nobby’s Beach stretches into the Pacific Ocean with Nobbys Head as Newcastle’s crown. Stroll along the boardwalk that leads to this craggy hill topped by the 150-year-old Nobbys Lighthouse. Continue towards the exhibits at Newcastle Memorial Walk on the full 6km journey along Bathers Way.

Hit the road

Newcastle is a gateway to the salty adventures of the Central Coast further north and the wine trails of the Hunter Region inland. Beyond the city’s own glistening sands and fine dining experiences, you can enjoy day trips to nearby mountain ranges, wineries, and high-adrenaline coastal adventures.

Hunter Valley wine region

The most prized vines of the Hunter Valley wine region stretch from Pokolbin, just an hour’s drive from Newcastle, to the Upper Hunter north of Wollemi National Park. You’ll find endless wine tastings at cellar doors, exquisite local dining, hot air balloon rides, and annual musical festivals at local breweries and wineries.

The Stockton Bight Sand Dunes

The golden stretch of sand between Newcastle and Port Stephens is home to the largest shifting sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. An hour driving through Worimi National Park will bring you to the northernmost part of Stockton Bight Beach where you can surf the 30-metre sand dunes.

Blue Mountains National Park

Awe-inspiring hiking, caving and horse riding adventures in the Blue Mountains are just over a two-hour drive south of Newcastle. This beloved NSW holiday destination is home to heritage-listed natural environments, historic architecture, and ever-popular pies from local bakeries.

Best Newcastle driving roads

Purple squiggle

Pacific Coast Highway

The legendary Pacific Coast touring route runs 1,000km between Sydney and Brisbane. Head north from Newy to meet the notorious dolphin pods of Port Stephens and explore the green hinterland of Port Macquarie in just a few hours of scenic driving.

Merewether Heights to the Hill

The aptly named Scenic Drive will ferry you from Merewether Beach along the leafy edge of Glenrock State Conservation Area to Hickson Street Lookout. It’s all within a 15-minute drive of the Newcastle city centre, but provides incredible sightlines along the coastal headland.

Tourist Drive 33

Visiting the Hunter Valley? Take the scenic route along Tourist Drive 33. Whether it’s a leisurely hour or so drive to Pokolbin or a longer excursion past Wollombi, this day trip will steer you through angelic countryside, over historic bridges, and into quaint townships.
