While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nelson Bay (Nelson Head Heritage Lighthouse and Reserve, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more), Fighter World (in Williamtown) and Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk, explore and take pictures at Fort Scratchley, learn about winemaking at Peterson House, and look for all kinds of wild species at Blackbutt Reserve.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
