Newcastle is a harbour city in the Australian state of New South Wales. Its plentiful beaches are linked by the Bathers Way, a coastal walk stretching between Nobbys Beach and Merewether Beach. The walk provides access to Bogey Hole, a convict-built ocean bath from the colonial period. Also on the path is the 1880s Fort Scratchley, a historic site and a viewpoint for spotting migrating whales.

Newcastle is a city on the up and up, with culinary, cultural and social evolution at the heart of change. In spite of the gentrification of inner city areas such as Wickham, it hasn't lost sight of its origins as a coal and steel port. The excellent Newcastle museum, behind the harbour, brings its industrial past to life, with an atmospheric audio-visual re-creation of life at Big Harry's Place (BHP steelworks). It also features footage from the 1989 earthquake, 5.6 on the Richter scale, that destroyed much of the centre and killed 13. Another section brings science alive with interactive exhibits allowing visitors to lift a car on pulleys, create a whirlpool and make iron filings dance.
