Newcastle Beach has a reputation for being one of the best surf locations in Australia and is a favoured spot for board riders wishing to catch that perfect wave off Newcastle Point.
Lifeguard Services are provided seven days a week during swimming season.
A stroll between Newcastle Beach and Nobbys Beach will take approximately 15 minutes along the scenic Bather’s Way. And it's adjacent to the historic Time Tunnel Mural which provides traffic-free access to the top end of Hunter Street.
There is easy access from Newcastle Central Business District, train and bus facilities. Plus it has a kiosk and shaded table area, (kiosk open during swimming season), volley ball nets and change room facilities available.
