Beaches. Mountains. Wineries. It’s like a feast for the senses, so hop on a plane and enjoy the adventure (and flavours) of Hunter Valley from the centre of it all: Newcastle.
Just one-tenth the size of Sydney, this city packs a lot into one holiday. Enjoy the gastronomical wonders of fine dining and laid-back gastropubs, then shop at the quirky boutique stores. Scratch your chin and say “hmm” at the diverse arts scene, then dance the night away at trendy bars. Cap it all off with a visit the very cool wreck of the MV Sygna. Make sure your camera is waterproof!
In short, Newcastle might be Australia’s oldest seaport, but it’s the perfect destination for new discoveries!
Flights to Newcastle Airport (NTL) land just 27km from the city. The city has plenty of transportation options, including buses, trains, taxis and Wotif’s car hire options—plus a few ferry rides with views.
Arriving in the morning? Catch some morning sun while taking a dip in an ocean bath. Are you on Newcastle flights that land in the afternoon? Check out Fort Scratchley and learn about Newcastle’s role in the nation’s defence. That, and see some pretty awesome views of the city.
If you arrive after the sun goes down, put your taste buds to work at one of the restaurants or cafes on Beaumont or Darby Street. Then head to Newcastle accommodation to sleep off that hard-earned food coma!
When you want to relax and kick back like a local, check out the foreshore. Large grassy areas are great for chasing your kids around with a bottle of sun cream or swaying to some sweet beats from local musicians.
