Description

Our Local Experiences are for those who want to get from Newcastle what no guidebook or internet search could offer. You will be shown little-known pockets of our neighbourhood and get to know the community in a deeper level. We know that the ultimate way to get to know a city is with a local, doing things that they do. Each season we share a different part of Newcastle that we really love.

You will spend 3 hours with a local, wandering through Newcastle's inner city suburbs on a bike and exploring quirky and semi-industrial streets, old hidden houses, inner-city wineries, waterways, and cafes. Depending on availability you may be introduced to members of the local Aboriginal language centre where you will learn about Awabakal heritage and learn some language. You will ride the graffitied laneways of old and eccentric Wickham, and check out Carrington, the old boat building peninsula which is perhaps Newcastle's most up-and-coming suburb. Your experience will finish up with a stunning ride past Newcastle's boat yards with a view of Newcastle city.

TIMING: Experiences start at either 8:45am or 12:30pm, and last 3 hours, including a stop for some of Newcastle's best coffee and food.

LOCATION: You will meet outside Lynch's Hub, on the foreshore at 292 Honeysuckle Drive.

COST: Experiences are $140 per person. This includes complimentary water, coffee, yummy food, and a possible cheeky beer or wine stop. If you do not have a bike you can borrow one from Lynch's Hub for free.

BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL! Experiences must be booked at least 2 days ahead, by contacting us by email. We will get back to you within 24 hours of your enquiry.
