Newcastle is a culinary and artistic hotspot near the sea. You’ll find hotels and self-catering apartments right in the centre of town and amongst the action. Newcastle is also the perfect place to rent an Airbnb with areas like The Hill and Cooks Hill offering up architectural terraces and cottages that go back to the city’s history but with a modern twist. If you fancy a surf shack over a quaint cottage, Merewether is an excellent location that’ll position you close to the beach and close to all the eateries and shops in The Junction.
North of Newcastle, you’ll find idyllic Port Stephens. Stay in a boutique luxury resort or enjoy glamping on the water’s edge. Share the experience with your family in a holiday home, resort style apartments or beachside cabin.
South of Newcastle, discover Lake Macquarie. With the largest saltwater lake in the southern hemisphere, there’s plenty of space for water activities or just relaxing on sandy beaches. Stay at a stylish beach house, modern hotel, laid-back B&B or holiday park.
For wine over water views, venture to the Hunter Valley. As Australia’s oldest wine growing region, you’ll find acclaimed gourmet restaurants, delicious local produce and luxurious spa retreats.
