Port of Call - Newcastle

Noted by Lonely Planet as one of the "Best in Travel 2011", the booming city of Newcastle offers everything a world-class city should.

As the second most populated area in the Australian state of New South Wales, Newcastle boasts a wealth of attractions, restaurants and cultural precincts. It is also the largest coal exporting harbour in the world and the predominant city within the Hunter region.

Spend some time wandering along the Foreshore promenade and soaking in the Newcastle Ocean Baths. Gain some perspective on the city´s history with a visit to the Fort Scratchley Historic Site or Bogey Hole, where you can uncover the city´s intriguing convict past.

Newcastle truly is a city of brilliant contrasts. With so many gorgeous things to see and do you will be pushed for time trying to fit it into just one day!

Port Stephens

Regarded as a water lover's paradise, Port Stephens is located just less than 60km from Newcastle and is an absolute must-see while in town.

Boasting 26 golden sandy beaches, unforgettable National Parks and unique dolphin encounters, Port Stephens is one of Australia's best natural treasures.

Take some time to climb the sand dunes, go camel or horse riding on the beach, or hire a quad bike for an afternoon of frolicking in the sand.

As far as Australian wine regions go, you simply cannot look past the spectacular Hunter Valley. Offering 4,000 acres of vines and 90 world-class wineries, a day in the Hunter Valley will reward you time and time again.

Absorb the incredible scenery this area is known for while winery hopping, picking up some of your favourite drops along the way.
