While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Visiting Tomaree Head and Blackbutt Reserve will get you outdoors. Popular historic sites such as Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve and Barrenjoey Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Newcastle side-trips: Norah Head Lighthouse (in Norah Head), Nelson Bay (Gan Gan Lookout & Dolphin & Whale Watching) and Terrigal Beach (in Terrigal). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Maitland Gaol, admire all the interesting features of Fort Scratchley, take a leisurely stroll along Nobbys Head, and take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk.

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in November, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
