Newcastle, New South Wales
Located at the mouth of the Hunter River, Newcastle is the second most populated city in New South Wales and is the world’s largest coal export port. First Nations people of the Awabakal nation lived in the area surrounding what is now known as Newcastle for thousands of years and was first explored by European settlers in 1797. Over the next two years, coal mined from the area was the colony’s first export. The settlement was renamed Newcastle in 1804, after the English city.
Dominated by Christ Church Cathedral, Newcastle has a considerable number of historic buildings including Fort Scratchley, Customs House, Shepherds Hill Cottage and the Newcastle Ocean Baths. Surrounded by golden sand beaches, a breathtaking coastline and a beautiful working harbour, Newcastle is only an hour’s drive from one of Australia’s best wine regions – the Hunter Valley.
