Tandem skydive directly over the beach with Skydive the Beach and Beyond Newcastle and experience the widest blue yonder you'll ever know! Freefall from up to 14,000 feet over the beach and experience sensational coastal views of Newcastle and the stunning Lake Macquarie region like you've never seen before.
Huge thank you to Bill and Wayno.
I had arranged for my fiancé to go Skydiving, upon arrival he surprised me and let me know we would both be jumping. I am deathly afraid of heights, there were tears. Bill noticed I was nervous and took me aside to go over the process and my harness, he continued to chat to us until our instructors were ready. Once my instructor Wayno introduced himself he went over everything and made me feel super comfortable about falling 15,000ft. The view from the plane was incredible and terrifying at the same time, each time tears surfaced Wayno would distract me with random facts about Newcastle and surrounds, all the while strapping up the harness.
He talked me through the whole process of when we reach 15,000 ft and when we would jump. The door opened, the light turned green and the first guy jumped. I have never been more petrified. As we shuffled toward the exit and my feet were dangling from a plane I just closed my eyes and felt a slight push... The most unreal experience of my life. Literally falling toward the earth and it was just amazing, I felt completely safe the whole time.
100% would do it again and 100% recommend this to anyone. It was an amazing experience I got to share with my future husband and I cannot thank the skydive team, especially Bill and Wayno, enough for helping me to actually do this.

I could not believe how much cool stuff they have there. It is a council park so it is all free and there are no staff available. The park itself is huge, and it has stuff for really little kids up to tweens. They have a pool fence with gates all around the outside, but actually the area covered is so huge you could still lose your kid. It would be better if it were separated further into smaller sections. Otherwise - make sure you take a friend and have a ratio of 1:1 kid:adult.
There is a cafe there where you can sit in or takeaway coffee/ice-blocks but be warned it really is just for families.

Lovely spot for the family. Seems to be plenty of parking spaces. Patrolled Beach, so safe for children. Caves to explore at low tide. Easy to get too and worth a visit. Showers to clean off the sand available near the car park.

Fantastic spot but the signage is poor for visitors. Technically there is no access from the Surf Club car park up to $1100 fine and from Webb park it is a bit of a walk. Direct access is from Cain Street Carpark northern point of Dog Exercise area and Southern end of Cain Street Duck Pond path (about mid point of Dog Exercise Area). Need to keep dogs on lead until you reach the beach but then it is fun time. Don't forget the poo bags

This park is adjacent to the Catalina WWII Memorial & part of the old WWII RAAF Base when the Catalina Flying Boats were based there. Right on the lake & a lovely spot surrounded by historical buildings from war-time when over 3000 personnel were based there. Great spot for kids with BBQ's and picnic tables.

Best Tour specialises in boutique wine tasting tours of The Hunter Valley. Door to door pickups, private sit down tastings, restaurant or cafe lunch, cheese and chocolate shops and The Hunter Distillery. Modern air conditioned 13 seat mini busses with adjustable Seating.
We chose best tours because they allowed us to take our little one which wasn't possible with the other tours. We booked separately to some friends of ours but because we messed up with communication we ended up being put on different buses. Bruce was incredibly helpful and accommodating, switching things around so that we joined up with our friends early which made the day.
The vineyards chosen were excellent, really different and interesting. Food was good value at lunch. The visit to the cheese and chocolate tasting at the end was a great bonus!
Would highly recommend for the friendly staff and the great choice of places to visit.

Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery is an exceptional cultural and tourist destination, widely recognised for its exhibition program and work with the community. Located on the shores of Australia's largest coastal saltwater lake, the leafy grounds include the award-winning gallery with state-of-the-art seminar facilities, a sculpture park, mosaic pathways, and the historic Awaba House Restaurant Cafe. Lake Macquarie is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with gallery-curated Exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter. Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice is the main focus of our Exhibitions, and respectful Aboriginal projects are a strong component of the program. The gallery can be reached easily via the lake foreshore cycleway, the water or by public transport. image caption: Janet Laurence,'Ghost',2009, glass, stainless steel, concrete, approx. 500 x 140 x 80cm, copyright the artist
I have attended this gallery regularly and very impressed with the staff and their helpfulness! The exhibition changes regularly and at the moment the photographic display is excellent! Highly recommend! The Awaba House Restaurant and Cafe is next door and makes a pleasurable outing for singles, couples & families!

Virtual Reality experiences for all ages. We have full room VR and a driving/flight simulator with motion platform. We offer all types of experiences! Come get up close with an 80ft whale while surrounded by sea-life while standing on the bottom of the ocean. Challenge yourself in a Virtual Puzzle Room or just fight some zombies with friends. Parties, corporate events and functions accommodated.
Marion, thank you so much to you and your team for making our event so much better than expected. We knew the kids would have fun but it was just so much better because of the assistance and organisation you provided that ensured everyone had...MoreColleen Thanks for your business and feedback, it was fantastic hosting you.

I took the walk from Bar Beach to Newcastle. The views were gorgeous and the historical sign posting fascinating. There is a bridge and quite a steep climb at one point. There is railing all the way.
Thoroughly recommended if you want some breathtaking views of Bar Beach and Newcastle. Great photo opportunities.

This lovely property is Dobell's own residence and art studio. The furnishings and memorabilia have been left as original (or replaced with near to original). The piano is stunning. The cottage is small and intimate, the volunteer staff are very knowledgeable. They are able to take you through the history of items and the history of the house's occupants, particularly Dobell and his sister. Upstairs is the piece de resistance - his studio. It is left in original condition and you can immerse yourself in the feeling of the artist being there.
It's fantastic that the public have access to this property, it gives a great insight into one of our significant artists. The location is spectacular - bring your walking shoes, walk around the lake and stop for lunch somewhere. Highly recommended.
