Things to see and do with a car rental in Charlestown
There’s so much to do in and around Newcastle that you’ll be spoiled for choice, so don’t forget to add a little extra time to your rental so you can experience some of the city and surrounds.
Charleston Square offers its own cinema and shopping mall, which is perfect if you’re in the mood for some bargain hunting. Meanwhile, other Newcastle hotspots include the museum and the numerous bars and restaurants. And of course you can’t come to the area without checking out the gorgeous beaches – Nobbys Beach and Merewether Beach are popular spots with locals and visitors alike. You can also head out to the ANZAC Memorial Walk, a spectacular 450 metres of walkway along the coastline.
Newcastle is also a great place to start a road trip, as you can point your wheels in any direction and end up somewhere amazing. To the south, the Central Coast glitters with nightlife and stunning beaches. Inland, the Yengo National Park offers epic scenery, as well as endless walking tracks to see it all.
Nearby, there’s also the lush Hunter Valley region and some of the best vineyards in the country. Head north with your Charleston car rental and you’ll find yourselves enjoying the bays, beaches and landscapes on the way to Port Macquarie.
You’ll never be short of things to do when you have a car rental to get you around, so check the Thrifty travel blog for more awesome ideas and advice.
