While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Change things up with these side-trips from Newcastle: Norah Head Lighthouse (in Norah Head), Nelson Bay (Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more) and Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk, kick back and relax at Palm Beach, admire all the interesting features of Fort Scratchley, and stroll through Nobbys Beach.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Newcastle trip planner .

In February, daily temperatures in Newcastle can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
