Just 2 hours’ drive north of Sydney, Newcastle is perched on the coast in the Hunter Valley wine region and has some of Australia’s best surfing beaches. Newcastle is big enough to have everything you need, without the crazy traffic and hustle of a major city. With breweries, distilleries and vineyards, beaches, bays and rivers, there’s lots to love about this coastal gem where we play hard and eat well.
