Newcastle

— 4 nights
While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pokolbin (Hunter Valley Gardens & Helicopter Tours), Ernest Hill Wines (in Nulkaba) and Wine D Road Tours (in Rosebrook). There's lots more to do: expand your understanding of the military at Fort Scratchley, take in the pleasant sights at Bathers Way Coastal Walk, surround yourself with nature on CoastXP, and let little ones run wild at Blackbutt Reserve.
