Newcastle Explorer

From Maitland Station, travel by coach to Queens Wharf on the waterfront in ‘Newy’. There’s enough here to keep you busy all day: an observation tower, marina, ferry dock, cafes, restaurants, pub, brewery… But an easy-going two hour Newcastle Afoot walking tour will give you a broader sense of the city, finishing with lunch at a uniquely Newcastle venue.
