Port Stephens: 1 hr | 60 km

Newcastle has come a long way in recent years from a coastal industrial city with a lot of potential, to a thriving cultural and surf centre with gorgeously restored heritage buildings, hip bars, and a laid back attitude. It's surrounded by water with the Hunter River to one side and the Pacific Ocean to the other. All highlights and the best places to stay in your camper van are mapped at the end of the article.

Newcastle is part of the Sydney to Gold Coast drive.
