In addition to the restaurants, bars and coffee, there are a few notable mentions that we didn't want to leave out. The Tea Project in King Street is a one of a kind experience and is for the lover of tea and high tea experiences. Right next door is Hello Naomi, the cupcake, cookie and cake queen. Coco Monde on Darby Street is for the chocolate lovers with handmade chocolates crafted on site fresh each day.
Should you be in Newcastle on a weekend there's always a market on with Hunt & Gather being one of the most popular, as too the Olive Tree in Civic Park. Also be sure to make use of the extensive network of footpaths that wind their way around the harbour and Honeysuckle Precinct.
The beaches are a given for either an early morning dip or brisk morning walk. For the best views make your way up to the ANZAC Memorial Bridge and Walk for a spectacular vista of Newcastle and beyond.
