Newcastle is a city on the rise, where creative energy and heritage architecture collide with surf beaches and a hard-edged industrial legacy. Take a day to discover the many charms of Australia’s third-oldest city.
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.
After lunch enjoy free time to explore this interesting city being transferred back to Broadmeadow Station where you’ll reboard the Great Southern in time for your evening meal.
