It’s funny to think that over the past 35 years or so I have always driven straight through Newcastle, usually heading more north. I have only stopped at Newcastle for work which was a day thing or been there cause my sister and I took the wrong turn and got lost which wasn’t rare for us if we were on a road trip together, we always said it was more fun that way.
But for the first time ever I stayed at Newcastle for a couple of nights with John. We stayed at Noah’s on The Beach, we had an amazing view of the beach and ocean from our motel room. The staff were really friendly and they had an amazing restaurant that overlooked the view.
The next day we went out to explore and check out what Newcastle had to offer, and I was impressed! We did a walk up to the lighthouse, which was fantastic, amazing views along the way.
I never really thought there was much at Newcastle, but I was proven wrong, thats for sure. And they had great surf as well, which is a bonus.
So next time you drive through Newcastle or pass it, stop off for a day or two and explore the surroundings, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
