Get ready to kickstart your morning! This is the perfect way to ease into the day and explore the beautiful city of Newy without waking up with the sun. We'll even reward ourselves with a coffee following the tour.
Beginning at Nobbys Beach, we will set out to explore the surrounding area and discuss the historical relevance of this popular area. We'll continue by riding along the foreshore and seeing some of Newcastle’s public art murals. These are a great window into the world of the changing landscape of this vibrant city. All throughout, your guide will provide insightful anecdotes and takeaways about local life that will round out the experience.
A bit further afield, we will take you to some hidden gems that are slightly off the beaten track and then deliver on that morning coffee.
This is a great opportunity to chat, get to know each other, ask all of your burning questions, and ease into the ride back to Nobbys Beach.
