Get active in Newcastle

Visiting Newcastle? Want to get a little more active on your trip? Or you're a local and looking for a new challenge? There are always plenty of new activities going on in Newcastle and ways to get fit.

1. Take a SUP class
Newcastle has so many options when it comes to getting amongst the waves. 2 UP SUP in Stockton offers stand up paddle boarding classes from some of Newcastle's highest certified and qualified SUP instructors. Partake in a beginner's class, tour the Newcastle Harbour or attempt to surf the waves.

2. Learn to surf
If you prefer it without the paddle Newcastle is known all over for its surfing culture and lifestyle. However, if you can't surf, or have never tried, there's no time like the present. There are plenty of surf schools to choose from operating all year round, such as iSurf Newcastle Surf School or Surfest Surf School.

3. Hit the hills in Glenrock Lagoon on your mountain bike
Glenrock State Conservation Area is only 5km from the Newcastle city and offers lots of different trails for mountain biking. Also check out the beaches, rainforest and waterfalls while you're there. There are tracks for all abilities and fitness levels, so whether you're super fit or just out for a leisurely stroll you'll find the right one for you.

4. Take a run along the Fernleigh Track
This 16km cycle way links Adamstown to Belmont with picturesque scenery throughout. The old railway line is always busy with walkers, bike riders and runners. It's nice and flat so perfect for those just wanting to take their time and soak up the bush surrounds.

5. Take a morning swim in the Ocean Baths
Forget the Bondi Baths, Newcastle is home to two of Australia's most beautiful ocean baths, Newcastle and Merewether. Open all year round both are located close by to coffee shops and restaurants for you to make a day of it. For those wanting to get a little swimming fit, they both provide space for the serious swimmers as well as offering a more chilled out zone for those who like to get wet but opt to avoid the sand..
