While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Myall Lakes National Park as well as CoastXP. Visit Maitland Gaol and Nobbys Head for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Maitland Regional Art Gallery and Timeless Textiles. Get out of town with these interesting Newcastle side-trips: Bennetts Beach (in Hawks Nest), Port Stephens Shell Museum (in Corlette) and Koala Reserve Mangrove Boardwalk (in Lemon Tree Passage). The adventure continues: stroll through Newcastle Beach, do a tasting at Moorebank Private Vineyard Estate, kick back and relax at Merewether Beach, and head outdoors with School of Yak.
