Cruising to Newcastle, Australia

As the second largest city in New South Wales and the oldest sea port in Australia, Newcastle has a unique history and heritage that is unlike that of any other destination in the country. Indeed, because of its importance, it is one of the few places in Oz that was attacked by the Japanese during World War II, and anyone who wants to learn more about this can do so by paying a visit to the fascinating Fort Scratchley.

Newcastle is also famous for the natural attractions that surround it, with the Barrington Tops National Park being a fantastic place for bush walks through the rainforest, where you may be lucky enough to come across some of Australia's most iconic inhabitants, such as the enigmatic platypus.

What's more, the city is renowned for the quality of its beaches and the many water sports that can be enjoyed here. Stockton Beach, for instance, is one of the most picturesque in New South Wales, while Nobys Beach is considered one of the best for swimming.
