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 Norah Head Lighthouse and Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve. Museum-lovers will appreciate Newcastle Museum and Gosford Regional Gallery. Explore Newcastle's surroundings by going to Maitland Regional Art Gallery (in Maitland), Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay) and Australian Reptile Park (in Gosford). And it doesn't end there: let the kids burn off some steam at Blackbutt Reserve, explore the galleries of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery, view the masterpieces at Horizons at Killcare - Gallery of Art, and go for a walk through Nobbys Head.
