Come for the beaches and stay for the people. Newcastle provides a warm welcome to the weary traveller with its lively cafés, ever-changing street-art, and laid-back vibe. As Australia's second-oldest city and New South Wales' second-largest city, there is something for everyone to enjoy in Newy.

Within the city-center, you can explore the Newcastle Art Gallery, where over 7,000 works are on permanent display. Outside the city, enjoy a jaunt to the Hunter Valley wine region, or an excursion to Lake Macquarie. For surfing, look no further than the golden sand beaches, such as Merewether or Nobbys beach.

Wanting to explore even more of the city? Kick off your day with our Morning Essentials Bike Tour and discover the city like a local! We'll include a coffee at the end of the tour and provide plenty of suggestions for the rest of your time here. Or, if you're looking to try some of our local specialities, our Essentials including the Burbs tour is the way to go. You will have a chance to sample local food, beer & gin plus join us for lunch at one of our favorite haunts. Spend your day with a Newy local and discover our coastal city in a whole new light.
