What To Do In Newcastle
Newcastle is located in New South Wales and is the second most populous city in that area. There is a variety of experiences to have while making your way through the city.
The city has a variety of walking tours you can take. If you are looking to breath in the Pacific Ocean air, take the Shoreline Walking Tour. This is a self guided tour that allows you to see Newcastle's harbors, beaches, and maritime culture at work. If you are a little more on the artsy side, try out the Artists' City Walking Tour or the Street Art Walking Tour. Both tours give you an opportunity to see a variety of public art from sculptures to murals.
For something a bit more historic, stop at Fort Scratchley. Fort Scratchley is a National Historic Landmark that offers both self guided and guided tours. It was originally used to help guide ships into the harbors. In the 1870s, the coastline was threatened by the Russians which forced the British empire to build defenses to protect the coal mining and shipping. The fort also saw action during World War II when the Japanese attacked the fort. If you need a break from all the history, take a look at the beautiful panoramic views offered at Fort Scratchley.
