And to prove it, we're offering media the opportunity to visit Newcastle for a fun-filled famil to experience the latest funky venues, fascinating attractions and warm hospitality travellers enjoy on each and every visit to Australia's oldest city.

Your 48-hour NEWcastle escape could look like this:


Morning - Enjoy the sounds of the ocean with a stroll along Bathers Way from Nobbys Beach to Merewether; or become immersed in Aboriginal culture at the Awabakul Cultural Resource Centre.

Afternoon - Relax in the romantic harbour front Honeysuckle precinct and enjoy a mid-afternoon refreshment from a cool waterfront spot such as Silo, Honeysuckle Hotel, The Squires Maiden or The Landing Bar and Kitchen.

Evening - You’ll need to make it a long night to do justice to NEWcastle’s variety of pubs and wine bars. Whether you start with a dinner cruise or a meal at Bocados, finish your evening with a visit to the newly launched lighting display City of Evolutions along Watt Street, or take in a performance at the historic Civic Theatre.
