Recently travelling from Sydney to Brisbane in a campervan, we spent a night in Newcastle before exploring the delights of the Hunter Valley and Nelson Bay. Near Newcastle is a beach called Stockton Beach where we stayed. The Stockton Beach Tourist Park has great facilities and has beach access to the popular Stockton Beach. There’s a rock wall which is great for fishing and even dolphin spotting. This also offers great views into the Newcastle Harbour – and a ferry can easily take you into the city if you’d like to explore it.We enjoyed getting up early for sunrise, with a few other enthusiats and watching the fisherman trying their luck.
