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. Check out their website for more information.
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 enthusiasts and watching the fisherman trying their luck.
