The coastal town of Newcastle was our last overnight stop before arriving back in Sydney, and although we had heard the beaches were something special, we had still completely underestimated them. Arriving late we checked into the YHA, it being too dark to take in our surroundings. The next morning we were dazzled by the beauty of the coastline!
First stop: Market Square. Saturday morning stalls were selling clothing and accessories, furniture and food, as well as some live performers. Prizing Charlotte from a newborn puppy, we took a long stroll in the bright sunshine along Nobby’s head to the lighthouse.
