SYDNEY - The City of Newcastle & Newcastle Beach

SYDNEY - The City of Newcastle & Newcastle Beach - Newcastle is a small city just 2 hours drive away situated on the North of Sydney. Newcastle City is the second most populated region in the New South Wales region with a population of approximately 150,000 and is the seventh largest city in the whole of Australia. One of the key highlights of Newcastle City is that it has a very busy harbor port as it is the World's largest exporter of Coal. It is the place to be if you wish to be amazed by the rare sight of giant 300m freight ships.

Newcastle City is the only few cities in the World which is surrounded by a total of 8 beaches. It also has some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia that are popular among surfers and tourists. Nobbys Beach is the safest swimming beach in Newcastle and is open all year round. Newcastle beach is one of the most accessible and popular beach but sometimes quite hazardous. More info at

Sara Shantelle Lim visits Newcastle - I brought my sister Sara to visit the famous Newcastle Ocean Baths and we were amazed that there were quite a number of people swimming despite the cold weather. The Ocean Baths is an enclosed swimming pool filled up by fresh sea water. Newcastle Ocean Baths opened in 1922 is one of Newcastle City's outstanding historic landmarks and is popular among amateur photographers. WATCH VIDEO above!

Lora's Knitted Coat is from SHEIKE

I have been going to Newcastle rather frequently to settle the purchase of an investment property and I am very fortunate to have bought a 2 bedroom apartment just 3 minutes walk from the beach at a very good price! I believe that there is room for growth in Newcastle as the City Council has many big plans to make Newcastle an attractive place to work and live in. I am so glad that I have a good girlfriend who lives in Newcastle and she is none other than Dr Stephanie Arasu who works at John Hunter Hospital in the ICU department. Doctors are so intelligent and such a noble profession that I really have deep respect for.

Lora's Floral Dress is from PORTSMAN

CHARLESTOWN SQUARE - My favourite shopping mall in Newcastle City as they have all my favourite brands such as Forever New, Dotti, Sheike, Bardot, Rebel Sport etc. and free 3 hours parking. The amazing thing about Newcastle is that movie tickets are priced at $8.50 unlike in Sydney City where each movie ticket could cost approximately AUD28-30+ dollars. More info at

Newcastle City is much quieter compared to Sydney City. It is highly recommended for a weekend getaway and short visit. You should cover a visit to Newcastle city together with Port Stephens when you travel up north from Sydney City. Australia is full of surprises and taking long drives away from Sydney City to discover new places has been a great delight and enjoyment for me.
