DreamBreak: Newcastle, Australia

Stay at a trendy hotel near the beach and enjoy some fun self-guided activities (trip does not include In-destination Support).

About Your Trip

Escape the everyday with a well-deserved DreamBreak in Newcastle. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this new travel option offers you a fresh way to experience your DreamTrips™ Membership, starting with a 2-night stay at a trendy hotel near the beach. The rest is up to you! This DreamBreak does not include an In-destination Support team member so you can create your own adventures, your way.

Only 2 hours north of Sydney, Newcastle is the perfect getaway destination — small enough so it’s not overcrowded and big enough to accommodate world-class venues. In fact, its laid-back atmosphere is perfect for a weekend jaunt away from the daily grind.

There’s so much to see and do in and around "Newy," with outdoor options at the top of the list. Walkers can take any of the available self-guided walking tours, including along the shoreline or through a neighborhood full of street art. Surfers can head to the beaches where they’ll find a variety of waves, from point breaks for daredevils to beach breaks for beginners. For a dash of culture, Newcastle Art Gallery has more than 6,000 works of art, while The Lock-Up features prisoners’ cells from 1861. Perhaps you’d prefer a trip to the harbor for an afternoon of whale watching and dolphin tours, snorkeling around the headlands or simply relaxing on the nearby patrolled beach. Want to head out a little further? You could book a tour to Stockton Beach (at your own expense) for fun activities such as dune driving, camel riding or sand boarding.

There’s plenty to keep you busy and active over these few days. Then, when it’s time to relax with a meal, check out the restaurants at Queens Wharf Hotel, about a 10-minute walk from your hotel.

During your stay, be sure to fuel up each morning with a complimentary buffet breakfast at your hotel.

What we love:
• It may be an uphill walk to Fort Scratchely, but once there, expect panoramic views of Tasman Sea, Hunter River and the coastline.
• Since the early 19th century, Newcastle has had a working harbor — the largest coal export port in the world! — and because of that, it boasts a thriving maritime culture.
• Need a break from walking? Take advantage of the free-of-charge public bus service that runs within the central business district.
