Need accommodation in Newcastle? Stay in Merewether ( Newcastle’s most sought after suburb) – Merewether Beach House is just 150 metres from our renowned surfing beach and ocean baths.
Throw a towel over your shoulder (or a surfboard under your arm) – a short 100 metre stroll and you can take a seat at the new Whale Watching Station. Down the steps and you can plunge into the largest ocean baths in the southern hemisphere. Fabulous Surf House sits on the beachfront just metres further on with its great restaurant, bar, cafe and takeaway. You are now on Newcastle’s famous Bather’s Way. Get some exercise and follow it along the beaches and headlands, past beach cafes and parks, towards Newcastle City and harbour.
If bush walking or cycling is more your style you will love Glenrock Recreation area just next door. Here the ‘ Great North Walk’ leads along the uncrowded beach to the lagoon and rainforest – or just hit the myriad bush trails.
A short drive (or a good walk) will have you in the vibrant eating and shopping precincts of the Junction or Darby Street, Cooks Hill.
A bit further on and you can enjoy all the attractions of the vibrant city of Newcastle with its beautiful working harbour and foreshores, exciting entertainment and music culture, museums, restaurant and bars – all only minutes away.
