While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Get out of town with these interesting Newcastle side-trips: Pokolbin (Peterson House, Hunter Valley Gardens, & more), Nelson Bay (Gan Gan Lookout & Dolphin & Whale Watching) and Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay). The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk, make a splash at Merewether Baths, admire all the interesting features of Fort Scratchley, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Nobbys Beach.

For maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Newcastle day trip planner.

In August in Newcastle, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 7°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
