Newcastle Beach in Australia

Newcastle beach

Australia had some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life. The pictures posted were from Newcastle beach. Newcastle is the seventh largest city in Australia. Back in the day it was known as a mining city, but over a few years it has taken drastic changes.

The Newcastle Beach attracts many surfers and sunbathers. The beach is kept clean and the sand feels absolutely amazing! During the afternoon, the beach does get a little busy. Facilities offered at this location includes, but are not limited to:

  • Access for people with disability
  • Accessible toilets
  • Parking
  • Picnic area
  • Toilets and showers
  • Kiosk
  • Shade shelters
  • Skate park
  • Volleyball net/court

The beach is not the only attraction in this area. If you were to walk up North for about 5-10 minutes, you will end up at the Newcastle Ocean Baths. The ocean bath is a popular swimming spot that opened up in 1922. It is a way to enjoy the ocean water without having to deal with the waves and sea creatures. The baths also includes an area with swimming lanes!

If you were to walk down South and up the hill for about 10-15 minutes, then you will end up at the Bogey Hole. The hole was cut into ocean rocks by convict labor in 1819. This is where the old commander of Newcastle bathed in the early 1800s. Now anyone is free to use it at no charge. Just be a careful as the waves may be a little too strong sometimes.

Hello! I was born and raised on a small island called Saipan for 18 years. Shortly after my high school graduation, I joined the United States Air Force. In 2016, I separated from the Air Force and moved to Denver, Colorado. In June 2017, I took a contracting job up here in Alaska. Since then, I have been living and experiencing the wonderful lifestyle of being up North!
