Newcastle Must Do's
Newcastle Memorial Walk

The Newcastle Memorial Walk was constructed to commemorate the centenary of ANZAC. The original concept for the project was a one-way walk along the cliff top with visitors having to turn around at the viewing platform and return the way they came via Strzelecki lookout. While this still would have been a remarkable project, the addition of the stairway to connect the walk to the Bathers Way is a fantastic addition enabling a 430m boardwalk providing visitors with a range of options for enjoying the walk.


Bathers Way Coastal Walk

Stretching from the commanding lighthouse at Nobbys Headland to the coastal wilderness of Glenrock Reserve and the early coal workings at Burwood Beach, Newcastle's Bathers Way is a scenic five kilometre coastal walk waiting for you to discover, play, swim and eat any way you choose.

Take two hours to walk the path or a month of Sundays to experience it all.


Merewether Beach

Merewether Beach, home of four times World Surfing Champion, Mark Richards and Malibu Surfboard Riding Champion, Martin McMillan. No doubt this is part of the reason that Merewether Beaches National Surfing Reserve was declared in March 2009. The reserve stretches from Dixon Park in the north to Burwood Beach in the south.

Council Lifeguard Services provided Monday to Saturday during swimming season.
