Welcome to Newcastle, mate! Situated on the east coast of New South Wales, this port city is full of history and good times. From punting at Broadmeadow to sampling the vintages in the nearby Hunter Region, there’s a little something for everyone here.
You can’t see it all on foot (well, you can, but we don’t recommend it). Let Wotif hook you up with your Newcastle car rental and you’ll be on your way to adventure the moment you arrive.
You didn’t think we’d send you to a place without a beach, did you? Drop your bags at your Newcastle accommodation and slather on the sun cream, because the waterfront is waiting for you. Newcastle has several beaches, but check out Newcastle Beach itself to really see what we’re talking about. Dig your toes into the warm sand, snap a few pics of the pretty blue ocean and move on. You’ve got lots to do.
Your Newcastle car hire is kind of like a temporary steed, and next up it will bring you to a more traditional mount: the living, breathing kind. Broadmeadow Racecourse is just 5km west of the beach, and for nearly half of the year’s Saturdays it is home to top-notch racing events.
You played the ponies and sunbathed on the beach…and now you’re going to drink the wine. Steer your vehicle about 125km east to the Hunter Valley Wine Region. Embark on a hosted tour—or pay off one of your travel companions and let them do the driving while you enjoy some well-earned vino. Bring back a bottle or two for us, please.
Wotif is your one-stop shop for everything travel, from car hire in Newcastle to lodging you’ll want to write home about. Heck, you can even mix and match airfares and accommodation when you select one of our Newcastle packages. See you there!
