Holiday To Newcastle

Searching for a brilliant getaway? Pack your bathers and escape on a Newcastle holiday. Located on the coast of New South Wales, Newcastle is lined with sunny beaches.
That’s not the only thing that sparkles in this city. With its history grounded in rough-and-tumble coal mining, Newcastle started out as a diamond in the rough. Today, you’ll find a luxurious seaside hideaway with natural beauty and easygoing charm. Sure, you’ll likely spend your days lying on the sand perfecting your tan, but you’ll want to get a culture fix too, and this busy port town delivers. Take a walk through local history, taste the local cuisine on a street food tour and make some new friends when the city comes to life at night. Already grabbing your sunnies? Check out our package deals to Newcastle and start planning your next waterside adventure!

Things to Do in Newcastle

You can kick off your holiday by picking up one of Wotif’s Newcastle car hire options, since it’s an easy way to get around and feel the sea breeze in your hair. Otherwise, the Newcastle Memorial Walk is a great way to see the city as you amble along the coastal roads on foot. Start with a dip at Merewether Beach and Baths and head north. As you walk toward the Newcastle Breakwall, you’ll cross Bar Beach, King Edwards Park, the historic Fort Scratchley, and Nobbys Beach and Lighthouse. Oh, plus a few other beaches and parks mixed in for good measure. You can easily make a day out of just wandering around. But don’t forget to stop in The Hill neighbourhood to visit the historic Christ Church Cathedral, built in 1817. From the cathedral, you’ll be a short walk to the Newcastle Art Gallery at Civic Park and the Newcastle Museum—all Newcastle, all the time.

Feeling cultured? Good. Now it’s time to give those Newcastle package deals a run for their money on a little shopping spree!

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

When you’re ready to say “Laters” to the museum scene and splurge with your savings from our chic-cheap Newcastle holidays, we know just the place. The Hunter Arts Network is a collective of local artists and vendors who set up one-of-a-kind pieces for sale on King Street. Love Bohemian vibes and snacking while shopping (who doesn’t)? Check out the boutiques on Darby Street in the central Cooks Hill neighbourhood.

Speaking of Darby Street, you can stay right there and stuff your face after filling your shopping bags. This road is lined with more than 30 international restaurants, cosy cafes and coffee shops—more than enough to keep you feed and caffeinated for your long days of chilling out at the beach.

When the sun dips down, hurry over to the waterfront along Hunter River. Right along the water, Honeysuckle Drive is sprinkled with classy cocktail bars and gorgeous views—how sweet is that? To the south, Hunter Road is also good place to close out the day.

What’s Next?

You can make planning and saving for your next trip as easy as, well, going on holiday. Mix and match your own Newcastle packages and save now with Wotif!
