Plan Your Event

In 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016, Newcastle was a recipient of an International Festival and Events Association Award for cities with a population less than one million. The city continues to flourish as an event destination with recent large scale events including the AFC Asian Cup, SuperMoto, Surfest and Grand Masters Hockey World Cup. Newcastle is committed to providing world class event experiences for organisers, participants and event goers with its strong community spirit and 'can do' attitude.
