Newcastle’s coast plays an important role in our sense of identity and character. The coastline stretches approximately 14km from Glenrock State Conservation Area in the south to Stockton Beach in the north.
The Hunter River divides the coastline into two distinct coastal areas. The coast to the south is characterised by pocket beaches surrounded by tall coastal cliffs while Stockton Bight located north of the river forms the longest stretch of sandy beach in NSW.
Sustainable management of the coastline is required to retain the environmental, social, cultural and economic values of our coast for the enjoyment of the community now and into the future.
