  Newcastle Beach
by Mez77

If you happen to be visiting Sydney, which most visitors to Australia are prone to do, you should consider heading north to visit Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. It is only 1 1/2 hours drive to reach Newcastle. The region has great beaches and one of the best wine regions in Australia.

Check out my Newcastle Page for more information.

I'll also be putting together a Pokolbin page, with highlights of the Hunter Valley.

Directions: 1 1/2 drive north of Sydney on the Pacific Hwy.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
