Newcastle

(4/5 based on 4,600+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, beaches, wildlife areas
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.
