Like Sydney’s laid-back younger sibling, Newcastle is a fun and easy-going city on the coast with a variety of beaches, natural highlights and urban delights.

Driving in Australia

The most important thing for foreign visitors to remember is that traffic stays on the left! Speeds are measured in kilometres per hour and distances in kilometres. Foreign licences can be used for up to three months, then visitors are required to pay a fee to get an Australian equivalent. Seatbelts are required by law and driving with a blood alcohol limit of higher than 0.05% is prohibited and carries penalties of fines, suspensions and possible imprisonment.
Driving in the outback requires a little preparation! Civilisation can be sparse, so stock up on petrol and provisions when you get the chance. Avoid unsealed roads unless you have a 4WD rental and make sure you stay alert on the long, straight empty highways. But the roads of Newcastle are ready and waiting for you. 

So much to see and do in Newcastle

There are plenty of places to visit once you have picked up your rental car at Newcastle Airport. The CBD has some wonderful heritage architecture and funky shopping on Darby Street, along with many places to eat and be entertained. Beaches are a popular destination for visitors and locals and there are also several ocean bath complexes for safe swimming.
South of Newcastle lies Lake Macquarie, the largest coastal saltwater lake in the country and popular for recreational fishing, boating, swimming and other water sports. Continue in the same direction and you will meet cosmopolitan Sydney, while beyond that the coast stretches down towards Melbourne and the state of Victoria.
To the north you can follow the coast through seaside towns such as Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour and eventually arrive in sunny Queensland and the exciting Gold Coast. Inland from Newcastle is the New South Wales outback, a beautiful and desolate landscape where you can get a taste of Australia’s interior. The famous Darling River winds through the state. Once an important method of transport for pioneering Australians, there is much history to be enjoyed along the banks of the Darling.
