Eating out in Newcastle

Surfhouse Restaurant, Merewether, Newcastle

A thriving cultural scene and bustling eat streets have helped Newcastle become an exciting regional food destination. The city has four distinctive dining neighbourhoods offering plenty of opportunities for eating out in style.

Right on the harbour at Honeysuckle wharf, The Boardwalk is the place to head for sophisticated dining and opulent bars with water views. Along Beaumont Street, Hamilton,you'll find a lively pub scene and sidewalk cafes that have a strong mediterranean focus. Darby Street in Cooks Hill has a relaxed bohemian style with cafes and galleries to browse while The Junction has a smattering of restaurants.

Provedores that are well worth visiting include Fishermen's Wharf Seafoods at the Co-op, Wicked Chocolates and PeaBerry Ground Coffee. At Sunday's Newcastle City Farmers Markets you can stock up on fresh, local produce. And don't forget... the Hunter Valley vineyards are just over an hour away.

Surfest 2016

There’s always something going on in Newcastle. The largest surfing festival in Australia, Surfest kicks off in January, where you can see some of the world's top professional surfers compete. In February, Light Up Newcastle takes place, an evening walk around Newcastle’s harbour foreshore to raise money for the Seafarers Centre, as well as Newcastle's Maritime Centre. While you're in town, don’t miss Newcastle’s beaches. Walking distance from the heart of the city, they’re arguably some of the best city beaches in NSW. Australia’s second-oldest city also has a reputation for a thriving arts and music scene (it’s the hometown of Aussie legends Silverchair, for a start), an up-and-coming cafe and dining scene, and it’s just an hour’s drive to Australia’s oldest wine growing region, the Hunter Valley.
