While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Explore Newcastle's surroundings by going to Norah Head Lighthouse (in Norah Head), Tomaree Head (in Shoal Bay) and Bagnalls Beach Reserve (in Corlette). The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Newcastle Memorial Walk, do a tasting at Ivanhoe Wines, take in nature's colorful creations at Hunter Valley Gardens, and get your game on at UnrealVR.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Newcastle fast, fun, and easy.

Boracay, Philippines to Newcastle is an approximately 17-hour combination of ferry, flight, and train. You can also do a combination of ferry and flight; or do a combination of ferry, bus, and flight. Traveling from Boracay to Newcastle, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Boracay in February since evenings lows in Newcastle dip to 20°C.

Located off of the Great Western Highway, Katoomba is the main hub of the City of Blue Mountains.
Venture out of the city with trips to Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge), Jenolan Caves (in Jenolan Caves) and Bilpin Cider Company (in Bilpin). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Wentworth Falls, take some stellar pictures from Govetts Leap, don't miss a visit to Gallery Blackheath, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

Plan my Katoomba trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Newcastle to Katoomba in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or do a combination of flight and train. In February, daytime highs in Katoomba are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Sydney.
