While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve and Maitland Gaol. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Palm Beach and Terrigal Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Newcastle: Barrenjoey Lighthouse (in Palm Beach), Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay) and Norah Head Lighthouse (in Norah Head). Spend the 31st (Mon) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Dedicate the 3rd (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Peterson House, visit a coastal fixture at Seal Rocks Lighthouse, identify plant and animal life at Blackbutt Reserve, and pause for some serene contemplation at Christ Church Cathedral.

For maps, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Newcastle trip site .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
