Newcastle

4.3
While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom. Its vibrant art scene includes well-respected art galleries and the Hunter Writer's Center and hosts a range of festivals and events. The city's architecture is an eclectic blend of Victoria-era industrial buildings and modern business centers that adorn the harbor's coast. The town's steel industry has served as a backdrop for fictional settings, such as in the novel "Steel River" by Antoinette Eklund. Add Newcastle and other destinations in Australia to your travel itinerary using our Australia trip itinerary planning site.
