While Newcastle is known for its coal exports, it's also made a name for itself with a cultural boom.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Merewether Beach and Newcastle Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Harkham Wines and Christ Church Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Newcastle: Stonehurst Cedar Creek (in Wollombi), Mount View Estate Winery (in Mount View) and Pokolbin (Pepper Tree Wines, Tamburlaine Organic Wines, &more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The Lock-Up, walk around King Edward Park, go for a walk through Newcastle Memorial Walk, and visit a coastal fixture at Norah Head Lighthouse.

To find maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Newcastle day trip site.

Manila, Philippines to Newcastle is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. Traveling from Manila to Newcastle, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. In June, Newcastle is much colder than Manila - with highs of 20°C and lows of 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) so you can go by car to East Maitland.
