Newcastle is a harbour city in New South Wales, around a 2-hour drive north of Sydney. Newcastle is surrounded by golden beaches, forests and national parks. To its south, Lake Macquarie provides inland beaches and nature trails right on the city’s doorstep. Its many coastal beaches are connected by a coastal walk, known as Bathers Way. Running from Merewether Ocean Baths to Nobbys beach, the 6-kilometre walk is one of the most popular coastal walks for locals and visitors alike. Along the walk, you will see stunning beaches, a colonial-era bathhouse and Fort Scratchley, a former colonial defence post building in 1882 that now serves primarily as a museum and viewing platform to spot migrating whales. Entry into the Scratchley Museum is free and makes a great addition to the coastal walk.
Newcastle is filled with fun activities to do and places to see, made easier with your rental car. Enjoy museums, galleries, botanical gardens, shopping and restaurants. You will find boutique shops in quiet lanes in the city centre as well as larger department stores, so if exercising some retail therapy during your stay is an option, you’ll find something to take home. Newcastle also has a wide range of restaurants, from world-class fine dining to casual pub meals.

Being right by the ocean, and with a number of natural attractions on offer, Newcastle is one of the few cities you can get a nature fix without leaving the city limits.
