No Worries, Mate!
Newcastle changed completely from time to time. As it was used to be called “hellhole” it is now a place where people are very relaxed. With it’s down- to- earth atmosphere it is a sort of place where you can go to the grocery shop barefoot and can literally go surfing during your lunch break. Newcastle is a city with many beautiful beaches and plenty of shopping opportunities. Also the city’s nightlife with its restaurants and bars should not be missed out.
As Newcastle is centrally located at the east coast of Australia you can reach many places from there. Sydney is just a two hour trip away from Newcastle. Also the famous Port Macquarie and Port Stephens are not far.
