Newcastle attractions and guided tours

There’s no better way to experience a city than through the eyes of a local. To soak up the incredible Newcastle attractions, why not take a guided tour of the city? Tours are a great way to experience the very best of Newcastle and allow you to fully immerse yourself in the unique sights and sounds of one of Australia’s oldest cities.

From the best caffeinated cuppa in town, to the must-try swimming spots, and how to find Newcastle’s best-loved underground bars, a guided tour will provide you with insider tips and knowledge, guaranteed to help you make the most of your trip. 

Newcastle is best explored by land, sea and even sky! Jump on a bike to experience the incredible national parks and harbour-side city at a more leisurely pace, or jump on a bus to neighbouring Hunter Valley and indulge in the finest local wine and produce that the region has to offer. Navigate the waterways at your own pace with Newcastle Kayaking Tours or learn to sail with Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club. If you’re a thrill-seeker, a helicopter ride might just be what you’re looking for. Experience Newcastle from high above and you’ll see why it’s one of the top NSW holiday destinations. Hold on tight!

If food is your thing, enjoy exploring the bustling hospitality scene made up of a mixture of cafes, restaurants and bars scattered throughout the city, beaches and Hunter region. Food and culture tours are a great way to experience the very tantalising tastes of Newcastle, so come hungry.  After dark, why not uncover the spooky stories of Newcastle’s rich historic past with an immersive Ghost tour?
