Welcome to Newcastle, a city of hidden treasures and captivating charm.

Once known as the “Hell Hole”, the region has been gentrified to host a multifaceted cosmopolitan lifestyle, and some of Australia’s most famous surfing breaks, finest vineyards, lively gig venues and innovative art spaces.

Visit popular beaches, take a dip in art-deco ocean baths, dine at first-rate restaurants, sample wines from the Hunter Valley and whale watch at Port Stephens.
