Newcastle

While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom. Its vibrant art scene includes well-respected art galleries and the Hunter Writer's Center and hosts a range of festivals and events. The city's architecture is an eclectic blend of Victoria-era industrial buildings and modern business centers that adorn the harbor's coast. The town's steel industry has served as a backdrop for fictional settings, such as in the novel "Steel River" by Antoinette Eklund. Newcastle is in Greater Newcastle.

Where to stay in Newcastle

Newcastle offers an extensive choice of accommodations, with the greatest choice available around the Hamilton East and Cooks Hill areas. Here you can find boutique hotels, hostels, and apartment rentals. Try a beachside residence for a great view of the harbor and quick access to the sand and sea.
